Bangalore University students now get speedier access to their degree certificates before their convocation thanks to the new online portal opened by university officials.

The initiative launched in partnership with MeritTrac Services, atesting and examination Services Company, allows Bangalore University students, who have completed their degree in 2010, to download their certificates online.

Bangalore University vice chancellor N Prabhu Dev said “During the first phase, only students who have completed their degree in 2010 will be eligible to apply for the convocation certificate. In the second phase, all students, including previous and forthcoming years, will be able to access this service,”

Students can go to and feed their BU registration number, and provide personal details (address, contact information, etc). Students can download the certificate- by paying a small fee of Rs 317-within two hours if they provide the required documents. The original certificate will be sent through post to their address within a month. The e-convocation certificates will be valid only until the main annual convocation after which students will have to get the original certificates.

Oxford To Stop Printing Dictionaries

Published by pratyushkp on August 30th, 2010 - in Social, Technology

The next edition of the Oxford English Dictionary may not be printed because of fall in book sales due to Internet.

Oxford University Press (OUP), publishers of the Oxford English Dictionary may not print the next edition of their dictionaries due to fall in sales and may be available only on print. The Dictionary is losing out its readers to online alternatives. The latest dictionary though will be available in its online version (OED) like the previous edition, which receives two million hits a month from subscribers who pay an annual fee of £240.
Oxford University press also gets royalty payments from Google, which uses an unbranded Oxford dictionary in its search engine.

According to Nigel Portwood, the chief executive of Oxford University Press “The print dictionary market is just disappearing, it is falling away by tens of percent a year,”

The latest edition of the dictionary prepared by a team of 80 lexicographers, which will contain words like vuvuzela- made famous in the recent football world cup- will only go to print if there is enough demand for the printed volume when it becomes ready.
