They can now read 2G: International Architecture Magazine, Architectural Record and even Outdoor Photography and Popular Photography can be a good sidekick for them. Save Spaces With the already existing high volumes of books, academic reserves, newspapers, magazines and journals, University has to plan its layout of its library carefully and constantly update the coordinate system of the location of the reading materials with barcodes. Now, with ChampFactor’s digital magazines and books, the librarians can now save the hassle of storing piles of reading materials that were not read and then thrown away at times, as well as in supporting green causes. Bears the Title “24/7 Virtual Library” By leveraging on ChampFactor platform managed by OverDrive, a leading publication company based in America, University of Malaya Library could simply win the title of 24/7 Virtual Library as its book service works similar to a physical library.

ChampFactor is a future trend, as you can see it. It operates on Zinio and OverDrive platform for digital magazines and digital books respectively. Hence, the quicker University of Malaya Library could anticipate for the inevitable change of reading cultures, the better it could keep the community abreast with latest, cutting-edge information, knowledge and innovative technologies. Besides, the students in University of Malaya are likely to rely more on electronic devices such as smartphones and tablets to read in coming years, based on the findings summarized in the chart shown below. The relevance of having a mobile application to read is further fortified by the stats that shown that men and women spent about 30 hours a month on mobile app, way much more than using mobile web.
