The students under the leadership of Mr. Ezra Kalule were welcomed by the NLU Director, Ms. G. K. Mulindwa who thanked the University for such an arrangement. She briefly took students through the functions of National Library of Uganda and she also challenged them about where they were going to apply the acquired knowledge. She further tasked the students to appreciate the new technologies with emphasis on tailoring library services to all the various categories of users such as children that many don’t seem to pay keen attention to. She encouraged students to look at this area especially when carrying out their research.
Under the supervision of Mr. David Munaaba and Mr. Jospert Chelangat both NLU staff, the students were taken through a hands-on skills training on the whole digitization process ranging from storage conditions for digitization equipment, environmental conditions needed, document preparation, different equipments (scanner and computers), software used and practical process of imaging. The practical process included training and giving every student an opportunity to set up and use the supra scanner with each student scanning at least four pages.
