In 2002 the professional software program MARC-SQL version 1.6 was acquired to give an opportunity for automation of all library processes and creation of electronic catalogue. Nowadays MARC-SQL version 1.17 is used.
We still continue to create electronic catalogue; the processes of book acquisition, subscription to periodicals and books registration are completely automated. At present, the technology of electronic library account (E-account) has been implemented in all the reading rooms.
In 2010 the library moved to a new building equipped with all modern facilities and necessary services.
The delivery desks for fiction, academic literature, the general reading room, the reading room for degree associates, the Rare Book reading room, the specialized reading rooms for electronic resources, periodicals and foreign literature are at your disposal.
The library provides its readers with both traditional and electronic informational resources and services. The library collection outnumbers half a million items of publications and unpublished documents of different kinds; it includes educational, academic, reference literature, fiction, journals and newspapers, collections of research papers, monographs, theses, scientific reports, and electronic documents.
Electronic informational resources of the library are represented by electronic textbooks and other educational materials, local databases, bibliographical and full-text databases acquired by license. The electronic catalogue of the library is available online. The library has access to the virtual reading room of the National Library of Belarus. We provide free access to the Internet for our students and university teachers.
The library is a participant of the interstate project “Associated Regional Libraries Consortium” and the republican project “BelAR” (analytical bibliography of periodicals). The library takes part in creation of the corporate database “Scientists of Belarus”.
