The BGMEA University of Fashion & Technology (BUFT) library started its journey with 1,000 volumes of books, now the collection of the books has reached about ten thousand. From the very beginning of its journey the focus was to ensure better services to its users. The Library collections and services, physical and virtual, provided outstanding support for recognized research in various programs while also addressing the learning needs of about four thousand students across the campus. Students and faculty ranked the Library as the most important source of information for their research. Library facilities are being framed as more flexible learning spaces with collaborative, individual study, instruction, and calm environment.
To realize the promise of the 21st century academic research library, it is essential that BUFT continue to focus on its users and align its programs to better meet their needs. As a continuing effort to improve the library facilities, new books were procured during the months of January-June 2013. Asia Foundation donations were also received to the the extent of 250 books. New Journals have been subscribed. Online accesses to libraries abroad have been negotiated along with provision for free subscription to books and journals of renowned publishers of the world. BUFT library is equipped with 20 computers with wifi internet connection. More procurement order for books and journals are in the process.
