Institute Library

Overview

The MSU-Iligan Institute of Technology Library was established when the Lanao Technical School of the Bureau of Vocational Education was integrated into the Mindanao State University in 1968 as an external autonomous unit. The school was then renamed MSU-Iligan Institute of Technology by virtue of R.A. 5363.

The library operates in a centralized system with the Institute Librarian as the head. It comprises the main library and seven satellite libraries.

The library holdings consist of books, periodicals and electronic media sources on subject areas covered by the curricular offerings of the Institute. The strength of the collection is on science and technology. Other resources include collection of theses and researches, microforms, vertical file materials and multimedia.

The open shelves system is adopted in all service points where users may browse and select their materials. Books are organized according to the Dewey Decimal Classification.
