Our Passion, Our Commitment, Your Advantage



From the Desk of Gulcin Cribb University Librarian

Welcome back to School and the new Academic Year.

The Library has been abuzz with students this fall. According to the 2013 SMUSA survey, students’ preferred study space is the Library. To meet the demand, we increased seating over the summer break. Additionally, a new seating area has been created to browse magazines and newspapers and to enjoy lifestyle books.

Library staff have been busy giving workshops and seminars on research skills and providing support to faculty and students for their classes and projects. We have increased the open access availability of research papers in InK, and more than 2500 SMU papers can be accessed globally now.

Please continue to connect with us through our Facebook page at Li Ka Shing Library @ SMU, as well as through the Suggestion Box located on Level 2 amongst other channels.

We are looking forward to collaborating with the SMU community to offer further innovative services.

Stay Tuned,
