The libraries of Dhaka University (DU) reopened for the students of honours final year and master’s courses on Sunday after 18 months of closure.
The students, who have received at least one dose of corona vaccine, were allowed to enter the libraries.
But some eyewitnesses said that the many students entered the Science Library without following health rules.
Former students and outsiders, who are not allowed to enter the libraries, also entered.
DU Vice-chancellor (VC) Prof Dr Md Akhtaruzzaman visited the Central Library at around 12:00 noon.
The students followed the central decision and behaved responsibly, the VC said while talking to reporters.
"I sincerely thank them. We seek everyone's cooperation in the process of returning to normal activities," he said.
“We are going through a rule. Hopefully, we will be able to bring all students back to campus step by step," he also said.
Earlier on September 15, the university Syndicate decided to reopen the libraries on September 26 and the dormitories on October 5 for the honours final year and master's students.
