They also visited the Center’s Sirindhorn Isaan Information Center and Digital Learning Park. 
 
MSU Academic Resource Center receives a number of visitors each year because of its library resources as well as Sirindhorn Isaan Information Center and Digital Learning Park. 
 
The Sirindhorn Isaan Information Center, which Her Royal Highness Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn graciously bestowed her name to, operates in conjunction with the Mahasarakham University Academic Resource Centre, housing and conserving one of the best collections of its kind in the country. The richness of learning resources and cultural information provided often amaze first time visitors and the significance of the center itself is far reaching in its implications, in that it contributes directly to a wide range of Thai studies providing services to users both domestically and internationally. The center functions as a repository where users can learn about the cultural heritage of the Isaan people through accessing a unique collection of artifacts and information relating to Isaan culture, traditions, education, arts, history, literature, and all other aspects of northeastern Thailand. The center’s collection includes; historical relics, objects, models and materials such as books, research studies, journal articles, local newspapers, clippings, maps, slides, pamphlets, videos, microfilm, CD-ROMS, digital images and other media containing Isaan information such as calendars, stamps, greeting cards, etc. Systemically managed and arranged with the use of modern technologies the information and artifacts contained in the collection are easily accessible to visitors, students and scholars. The center’s collection acts to foster a much deeper understanding and appreciation of a society comprised of people from a variety of social backgrounds and occupations and serves to promote a sense of regional pride and cultural identity. Additionally, the collection is a way of demonstrating to the people of other regions, as well as to foreign visitors that Isaan cultural roots run deep into the past as well as how they have evolved through the ages.
 
The Digital Learning Park provides friendly and creative learning environments to support learning practices for students and faculty members. The park is adopting and using digital technologies to provide one-stop access to information, knowledge, data and e-contents. The service includes search engine service, digital database service, visual media service, tablet service, Wi-Fi Zone, Group Study Room, General Information Zone, Mini Theater, Lib Tech Museum, and Exhibition Hall.
