The Library is the heart of the learning at our University. With 99% of its resources available online, it has become our Students' Learning Partner, supporting our students anytime and anywhere.
It currently provides SIT staff and students access to books, periodicals, audiovisual materials and leading academic databases such as ScienceDirect, and SpringerLink, including more than 200,000 eBooks and 100,000 eJournals. There are about 3,000 print titles, 50% of which are course textbooks.
The Library's role extends beyond the provision of resources. We are an active partner with our academic colleagues to imbue transferrable skillsets to prepare our students to be ready for a volatile industry workforce. The Library works closely with the various Programmes to take a scaffolded approach to embed relevant information and digital literacy skills at each level of study. This will mean our students are more likely to grasp the key concepts of information literacy at their points of need.
We also incorporated purpose-driven facilities and programmes to support learning and allow gainful opportunities for students to acquire and apply transferable skills to many areas outside of the formal curriculum. Students are making good use of the Library's facilities like the Media Studio and VR station and access to equipment like Robots and VR for their learning.
