Association International Library

— Overview

Welcome to Association International School Library, an interchange for intellectual ideas and a symbolic crossroad of learning. Here, the past collides with the present as we provide a borderless laboratory for students/scholars to study as well as research into new fields and methods of acquiring knowledge. The Library’s serene and congenial environment, as well as its effective application of day-to-day operating procedures by the staff ensure the provision of support and assistance required by patrons/users to enhance their reading and research activities.

Here, we are embarking on reinventing what the library can and should aspire to be. We are anticipating and adapting to the changing needs of students and faculty. We are again proposing open access by empowering researchers to share information with the world. Libraries are not created in a day, but through time, with careful acquisitions and plans. Already, we are fortunate to have a solid foundation of print books and electronic databases to meet the information needs of students, faculty, and scholars. Our libraries are automated; it makes information storage and retrieval very easy, proper records are kept about the resources of the libraries which ensure that borrowing activities are easily transacted.

The library is a learning center on campus; an environment in which students can read, relax, use computers or books and study in adequate comfort. It is also the place for students to enrich their academic lives and be inspired to set and reach high goals. This is just the beginning. There is much more ahead as we eat into the semesters and welcome fresh groups of students.

Library Collection

The library’s collections include printed and electronic books, DVDs, CDs, periodicals, online databases and journals. Online databases provide access to articles and other reference materials, most of which are full-text.

The library system also provides computers with internet access for its patrons to enable them to tap into the benefits that come with the use of the internet and the World Wide Web (WWW).

Books are organized according to the Dewey Decimal Classification (DDC) scheme. The library’s collection of books is segmented into general collection, reference collection, and periodicals.
