The library at Kyrgyz-Turkish Manas University first opened its doors in 1998. The goal of the library is to serve the needs of students for information and access to informational services in the natural sciences, engineering, foreign languages, the arts, sports, and social and demographic sciences. Library users have access to information not only in a traditional print format but also through web and internet resources. There is also an electronic catalogue for readers. 

Services

Students can use all publications in the library. Only students and faculty members of the university can use the library. 

Conditions of Use

Those who wish to use the library's services must show their university identification card. Students and faculty members can check out 5 items for no more than 15 days. If there are no others that wish to check out an item, then the item can be checked out three times in a row. Check outs can be extended through the website three days before the return date. If there is another user who wishes to check out the item, then the check out cannot be extended. Reference items, periodicals, abstracts, course reserves, video and audio items cannot be removed from the library.

When the item is returned, the user who placed a hold will receive a notification via email. The item will be held for three days, after which it will be returned to the shelves. 

More information about extending check outs and placing holds can be found on the library's website under "Reference Files".
