Information materials are arranged in accordance with the library of congress classification Scheme (LC) whereby, a book is given a class mark which indicates not only it subjects division but also its place on the shelf.

University Library

“A library is a good place to go when you feel unhappy, for there, in a book, you may find encouragement and comfort. A library is a good place to go when you feel bewildered or undecided, for there, in a book, you may have your question answered. Books are good company, in sad times and happy times, for books are people – people who have managed to stay alive by hiding between the covers of a book.”

 E.B. White


Computing and Applied Sciences

Make everything as simple as possible, but not simpler.” “Today, most software exists, not to solve a problem, but to interface with other software.” “Good specifications will always improve programmer productivity far better than any programming tool or technique.”

Management and Social Sciences

it’s not a rocket sciences. It’s Social sciences – the science of understanding people’s needs and their unique relationship with art, literature, history, music, work. The act design is structuring and creating that balance.

Basic Medical and Health Sciences

“Let us be the ones who say we do not accept that a child dies every three seconds simply because he does not have the drugs you and I have. Let us be the ones to say we are not satisfied that your place of birth determines your right for life. Let us be outraged, let us be loud, let us be bold.”

Faculty of Law

Law is not Law if it violates the principle of eternal justices.
