You can specify "Reserved Books".* Only for FacultyBorrower services

At the University Library, we have instituted a reserved books system as a service to provide students with books and materials related to their classes. Under this system, the texts selected by teachers are arranged in the Reserved Books corner in the library on the campus where the classes are given.
Reserved Books system is operated in a single year so, please make sure that teachers select the books and materials every year.

You can specify "Teacher-Recommended Books".* Only for Full time FacultyBorrower services

We have instituted a corner for "Teacher-Recommended Books" in the University Library in the hope that many students will acquaint themselves with the pleasure of reading and come to enjoy the library more.
