In a major initiative that can bring research literature into the campus, Sri Venkateswara University (SVU) will soon be ready for getting a direct link of The Netherlands-based “ScienceDirect”, considered a treasure-trove of science journals.

SVU is one of the 60 varsities in the country identified by the UGC to extend the link for taking science research to a new high. With the intervention by publisher ‘Elsevier', researchers will be getting thousands of science journals directly on their computer screen. Announcing this here on Thursday, Vice-Chancellor N. Prabhakara Rao said the facility would span all fields of science. Rector K. Ratnaiah and Registrar J. Pratap Reddy expressed hope that students, researchers and academics would make use of the facility.
