The Research Scientist Association (RSA) of the Ghana Atomic Energy Commission (GAEC) has donated a desktop computer and accessories to the Commission’s Library to enhance learning among the staff of the Commission.

The donation which forms part of the RSA Week 2021 celebration included items such as Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) device, a scanner and a printer.

Presenting the items, the RSA President, Dr. Adolf Kofi Awua, indicated that the donation was to support the library’s digitization programme to help improve its service efficiency.

He also noted that it would make access to information and other learning material easy as well as prevent repetitive records of books and materials, which he said saves time and material resources.

Receiving the equipment, Prof. Benjamin Jabez Botwe Nyarko, the Director General of GAEC, thanked the RSA for the kind gesture and assured them the items would be put to good use.

Prof. Nyarko noted that the items would support the efforts of the Commission to modernize its library to serve the needs of staff and other library users.

“A digitized GAEC library will attract the interest of all-and-sundry looking for information and not only research scientists,” he noted.

He urged the Librarian to adopt a good maintenance culture and keep the equipment in good working condition to serve its operational lifespan. “One of the key things worrying Ghanaians is poor maintenance culture which leads to loss of resources. Therefore, let us make the effort at keeping equipment that have been acquired with resources very well,” he said.
