Information resources

The information resources are made accessible through the Online Public Access Catalogue (OPAC), indexes and, in some libraries the manual card catalogue.  The electronic resources are accessed through the IP addresses for those within the main Campus and through usernames and  passwords for users outside the main Campus.  The card catalogue is maintained manually by filing files of new books and removing cards whose books have been weeded out or lost, while the OPAC is automatically updated frequently.

Technical Processing
The Library information resources are processed and organized using the Library of Congress Classification System (LCC) and the Anglo American Cataloguing Rules (AACR2) which are accepted widely. This ensures that our information resource databases are in line with internationally accepted standards and this enhances easy access to the materials as well as resource sharing with other libraries.
