Faculty may request this service but normally, the librarians make an appointment with them. Students on the other hand are given this service at the beginning of each term.
Library Seminar and Workshops

The library regularly holds seminars and workshops covering different topics with the goal of equipping our library patrons in their research process.  Among those are Mendeley, Evernote, APA/Turabian formatting, finding theses and dissertations, and many others.

Inter-library Loan & Referral

Inter-library Loan is an extended service from other libraries providing hard-to-find materials to our researchers. Patrons may give their inter-library loan request to the reference librarian on duty. Students may also ask for referral letter for their interest to do research in nearby universities and research libraries.
