The library is used by students as a quiet place to work on reports or graduation theses, while teachers use it actively use it for educational research activities. The library contains approximately 110,000 books, and the library operates on an open-shelf system, meaning that students can browse and borrow from the stacks as they please. The library also has a magazine corner which contains many up-to-date publications, and an audio-visual corner in which students can watch DVDs and videos, and listen to CDs. In the research corner, students can find the information they are looking for using the OPAC book search system, database for searching academic papers, and "Electronic Journal" that enables students to read academic papers on the web. The library also constantly operates a request post system which aims to provide all of the necessary reading materials that the students require.
The library is also open to members of the public as well as students.
