excellentpatron service. The core collection in the Center includes newspapers,
theses,dissertations, law documents, commercial and industrial information, and
governmentpublications. Each section has its distinct feature, furnishing easy access
to patrons.Other materials, such as maps and faculty publications, are expected to add

bettercooperation within the Center and on and off campus networking will also help
