Since the Library started work in the permanent campus, it
has got a new dimension to serve the readers. Readers are
getting a huge and wide space for study. Library has provided
sufficient carrels for individual study and it can now
accommodate about 200 readers in the reading room at a time .
Library has also turned to Open Shelve System (OSS)
that means readers now can browse books and journals directly
from the shelves, can see other relevant materials at a time.
Library workers are also there to help the readers.
Library has now got the facilities for the Faculties and
Researchers to study in a separate corner. Library is going to
establish an Internet browsing corner for research purposes.
It is a matter of great pleasure to announce that AUST is now
linked with Bangladesh-INASP/PERI Consortia (BIPC) under the
auspices of Bangladesh Academy of Sciences (BAS) to have
access to thousands of internationally reputed online journals
and books with downloading facilities of full text articles.
Library is the focal point of this service.
There was a
long time demand of Automated Library Systems and to fulfill
the demand a project for making software for this purpose has
been undertaken in the mean time. After the completion of the
work automated book search from the machine readable catalogue
and mechanized book issue system will be available.
