The library provides a range of services to support learning and research among which are circulation, study room reservation, off-campus access, instructional workshops and orientation tours.
The Library supports the research and learning experience by providing accessible print resources through a dedicated circulation policy available on the library website. The circulation service provides issue/return/renewal/ reservation services for students to ensure they make the most of the library resources. Ready reference services are also provided to its users.
Patrons can search for ACM Library resources such as books, journals and other resources through the Online Public Access Catalog (OPAC) on the ACM Library website. ACM OPAC allows patrons to check availability status of library resources, including books and journals and provides them with personal library accounts where they can view the items they have checked out and the overdue items.
Meeting Room Booking
The Library has 18 fully equipped group study rooms.
Each study room is accessed via a room booking system that the students may access on the library website or via the tablets available next to each room.
The doors have access control so the students who reserved the room may swipe their student ID to access it.
Study rooms can accommodate up to 6 students.

Guidelines for their use can be found here.
The university uses a proxy service so that students, faculty, and staff can access online resources such as the catalog, databases, and e-learning platform from outside the campus by using university credentials.
Information Literacy/ Library Activities
The library offers instructions and orientation services to students and faculty through sessions held by the library team to teach patrons how to successfully use the library resources and facilities.
