[TamilNet, Wednesday, 26 February 2003, 02:22 GMT]
School libraries of forty two schools in the eight districts of northeast province are to be provided with computers with Internet facilities before the end of this month, said Mr.N.Anandaraj, Co-ordinator of the School Library Development of the Provincial Ministry of Education Tuesday.
Mr.Anandaraj, who is also the Assistant Director of Education Tuesday, released the list of forty schools that have been selected for getting computers with Internet facilities.
