Delhi University’s central library has put out a notice which states that students of School of Open Learning (SOL) will not be allowed to use the central library present in Arts Faculty at North Campus. The notice has caused a discrimination uproar among students of the School of Open Learning.

The notice reads “SOL not allowed” without any signature of the authority issuing this notice. “SOL students have no library facilities at the study centres. Now, even the central library has pasted a notice barring entry to SOL students. This is pure educational apartheid. Usually, SOL students hardly used library resources. Why was there the need to put such notice” said Harish Gautam,a student and member of the Krantikari Yuva Sangathan (KYS),a student wing of SOL.

University librarian D V Singh’s statement gave an impression that SOL students aren’t part of the Delhi University. ‚ÄúSOL students are part of an autonomous body and they have their own library. They were never allowed here because those preparing for competitive exams enrol themselves in SOL and want to use the library space to sit and study. If they occupy this space, where will students of our colleges go?‚Äù¬†he said.
