About the Library


1. Introduction

The University Library is located at the center of MUST campus for the convenience of students

and faculty. It is a four-story building with a basement. There are a periodical section, a new books

display section, a reference books section, a database search section, meeting rooms, a study room,

a gallery & exhibition hall, a multimedia center, and stacks of Chinese and foreign language

literatures in this 6,300 square meters floor space.


The University Library is consisted of the Division of Acquisitions & Cataloging, the Division of

Reader Services and the Division of Information System. In 2002, the digital system, Millennium,

was adopted by University Library. The Millennium is an integrated system providing modules to

automate periodical management and article circulations. It also offers Online Public Access

Catalog (OPAC) for faster and efficient service.



2. Developmental Features

University Library provides wireless internet service and video-on-demand (VOD) service. The

library periodically offers seminars to promote the usage of library resources. MUST students and

faculty also receive updates on new collections and obtain information through monthly library

electronic newsletters.


The library provides virtual office hours to serve users. The online services includes acquisition

 recommendations, rush cataloging service, borrowing record search, missing item search, and

 FAQ service. The library has created two new sections: “Health & Leisure Section” and

 “Childhood Education Section”. The collection for these two sections will be a distinguishing

 feature in the University Library.


3. Future Prospects

MUST is planning to build a system for Institutional Repository. We also plan to digitalize all its

collections to save space and to provide more efficient services online.
