The Chancellor Receives the UPNVJ Library "A" Accreditation Certificate from the Ministry of Education and Culture


Public Relations UPNVJ - The library belonging to the Jakarta "Veteran" National Development University (UPNVJ) has successfully achieved an A Accreditation Certificate from the Ministry of Education, Culture, Research and Technology (Kemendikbudristek).

The certificate was handed over directly by the Ministry of Education and Culture to the Chancellor of UPNVJ Dr. Anter Venus, MA.Comm, at the Library Coordination Meeting within the Ministry of Education and Culture at the Grand Sahid Jaya Hotel Jakarta on Monday, March 25 2024.

"This is the fruit of hard work, of our shared vision, to make the library the center of the university," said Venus when met after handing over the certificate.

Venus said that various academic, scientific and research activities at UPNVJ should be linked to or directly connected to the library. This needs to be supported by improving library services along with the availability of books and various other reference sources.

"The Chancellor is committed to making the library the center for all academic activities within UPNVJ," said Venus.

Currently, the library function at UPNVJ has been expanded. Not only a book service, the UPNVJ library can also function as a museum and gallery.

In the future, continued Venus, the library at UPNVJ must be increased further in terms of the number of book collections, supporting technology and various other facilities. The Chancellor hopes that the UPNVJ library can become one of the most sophisticated in Jakarta so that it can become a reference.

"After our library gets Certificate A, it will become a national reference library. After that, we will fight again to become internationally accredited," concluded Venus.

The Ministry of Education and Culture has 277 libraries under the ministry, consisting of 152 special libraries in UPT work units, 125 state university libraries, both academic and vocational.

Of the 277 libraries under the Ministry of Education and Culture, only 75 have been accredited and 202 have not. In 2023, there will be 16 accredited libraries, namely four special libraries and 12 university libraries. (*wit/PRUPNVJ)
