Collections & Arrangement

Books from the Open Shelves are arranged according to the Dewey Decimal Classification and can be loaned and taken out of the library, for a specific period depending on the user type. While books from Reserve and Reference collection cannot be loaned out but can be used inside the library. Books at the reserve include only prescribed or recommended material and can be loaned for a maximum of two hours.


The library has a service counter, and this is the point where clients can return, renew or loan material provided they have a valid ID card. Loan periods are the same as that of main campus library.
