The Department of Library Services strives to be the leader in the fields of information provision and knowledge management for academic excellence. Therefore, in addition to the traditional library services, the Library presents a holistic e-service to its clients, including e-books, e-journals, an institutional repository, customised web pages, knowledge tools, digitised full text local collections, a digital reference service and a MakerSpace.
