The University library’s collections comprise hundreds of thousands of volumes housed in the Main library, in some satellite small libraries, and special collections. Digital collections are also growing rapidly. In addition to locally digitized materials, the University library provides access to hundreds of thousands of e-books, journals, magazines, and newspapers.
Special collection and reference services are provided on the 2nd floor of the library. These services encompass a broad range of information needs, such as finding quick answers to questions, accessing online catalogs and other electronic resources and locating library materials and information on specialized topics.
There are carrels and reading rooms on the 2nd floors of the library. These are intended for scholars, graduate students and others working on projects requiring the use of the library’s collections or in need of peace and quiet to do their work. Upon the request of students, the central library’s study halls which are located at the ground floor, are open during the working days based on the following schedule:
- The Boys study hall is open 24 hours 5 days a week.
- The Girls study hall is open from 8:00 AM till 21:30 PM, 5 days a week.
