Its staff is ten full-time employees. Its collection includes printed and non-printed material and its services are offered, according to regulations, not only to the students and the staff of the University but also to anyone who may be interested in its material. Any individual and organization (public or private) can borrow and photocopy Library material according to international copyright laws. Moreover, within the Library building, there are modern electronic systems in order to ensure quality and quick service users.
