Organization of Library Materials

AIU library uses the Dewey Decimal Classification System for organizing its materials. However, where possible, librarians have assigned the Library of Congress Classification Numbers to many books and they are available for viewing in the MARC records.

Reference Resources

Thai resources, both circulating and reference, are found on the ground floor. All English reference books are on the ground floor as well.

Library Software System The library employs the Magic Library Software System for computerizing its catalogue. It is a locally made system, bilingual, and web-based.
