The MSU library or Academic Resource Centre (AREC) is located conveniently in the center of the Khamriang Campus (19). It is open from Monday to Saturday 8.00 am to 8.00 pm and Sunday 8.00 am to 6.00 pm. It is closed on public holidays.
Resources in the library may be borrowed by students and staff who have appropriate MSU ID. When borrowing, the ID card is either shown to library staff or used to access the library automation system. Staff will be happy to demonstrate.
Teaching staff may borrow up to 20 items at a time. Items must be returned before the end of the semester excluding fiction which may be borrowed for a maximum of seven days. Non-teaching staff may borrow up to 10 items at a time for a maximum of seven days. Graduate students may borrow up to 15 items for a maximum of seven days. Undergraduate students may borrow up to 10 items for a maximum seven days. There are fines for late returns.
The following resources are available for use within the library only: reference materials, journals, newspapers, electronic media and resources held in the Sirindhorn Isan Information Center.
Should resources not be returned to the AREC, or returned damaged, students will be prevented from reenrolling at the university and will not receive a certificate or diploma until the resources are returned, paid for and/or outstanding fines paid. In the case of staff, the university is authorized to deduct the replacement cost of unreturned resources from the staff member’s salary.
Copying or scanning of resources is available at reasonable cost.
Visitors must be dressed neatly and modestly. Smoking, eating and drinking are not allowed in the AREC. Noise that interferes with the concentration of others is not permitted. There is also a branch of the AREC in the College of Politics and Governance. It stocks mainly resources related to politics and law. These may be accessed by all staff and students. There is another branch on the old campus which stocks resources relating to subjects taught by faculties based on that campus.
