The days of closed access are over where you can only retrieved information by coming over as a patron to access it at the designate knowledge center. Hoarding intellectual contents that could be beneficial to a researcher somewhere around the world is not something to celebrate anymore.

We missed all our patrons who are currently on holiday. We hope to see you all soon...

Funny Library Rules
Whenever you are looking for an important book it's always out of stock. However, if you you are looking for an indispensable book, then it's out of print.
The thinnest books have the longest catalogue numbers.
In any library, there is only one person who knows where all the books are. Find them before their boss fires them.
In any library, the helpfulness of any member of staff is inversely proportional to the number of pens in that perso...n's pocket.
The student with the most overdue books fails their course. [One professor we know comes into the college library at the end of every academic year, and asks for the list of students with overdue books. We cannot help noticing that the list corresponds precisely to the end of term grades. The student with the most overdue books failed their course.]
