The birth of bon bosco library in 1995 at chinthanaloka inaugurated a new era of our vice province of sri lanka in the training and intellectual accompaniment of our young students for their future mission. The immediate post novitiate formation integrated with philosophical studies and research led the process of our library to greater horizons. Many of our senior Salesians have generously donated books and many other resources in the formation of our library. A number of don Bosco institutions came forward to support our project financially. The Delegation House at that time allocated Rs. 30,000 periodically creating a library fund. Our major superiors had a keen interest in strengthening our library project. Their periodic visits have opened new opportunities to acquire new volumes. A number of books have been acquired from India with the generosity of our Indian superiors and confreres.In 2002 our library found a definite and more organized project with the founding of the new library building blessed by Rev. Fr. Benjamin Puthota our late Delegate Superior and inaugurated by Rev. Bro. Gabriel Garniga our Provincial Economer. With the temporary suspension of DBCIPH in 2008 our library experienced a desertion and dispersion losing a number of important books and volumes from her possession.
Today in a span of twenty years of unfailing scholarly journey our library stands as a moral and spiritual force leading our vice province to the challenges of the third millennium. Today our library is in possession of over 6000 books and precious volumes of various sectors of knowledge illumining the hearts and minds of all those who enter her wise and spiritual dwelling. In 2015 the academic community launched a full-pledged rapid developmental project expanding and opening up to the modern day digitalized access of knowledge. The inauguration of the new IT department in the library and the computerization of all the volumes have opened the doors of chinthanaloka to the World of global learning. In this process the untiring and generous service of the staff of the colombo public library deserves recognition and appreciation.
The Internet is a global system of interconnected computer networks that use the standard Internet protocol suite (TCP/IP) to link several billion devices worldwide. It is a network of networks that consists of millions of private, public, academic, business, and government networks of local to global scope, linked by a broad array of electronic, wireless, and optical networking technologies. The Internet carries an extensive range of information resources and services, such as the inter-linked hypertext documents and applications of the World Wide Web (WWW), the infrastructure to support email, and peer-to-peer networks for file sharing and telephony.
In 2017 the DBCIPH launched the Academic Management System (AMS) which is a single web-based platform that allows students and teachers to achieve the best possible outcomes while allowing learning to effectively manage day-to-day activities. Our web-based solution integrates all the features of a traditional school management system with a set of teaching and learning tools focused on students outcomes. The AMS is designed to support schools to not only improve administrative workflows but also to nurture their students across all stages of their learning journey. Students then perform better with the help of a streamlined curriculum and lesson planning, as well as the easy collaboration and sharing of information between teachers, parents, and students.
