An Introduction to the Library of Department of Mathematics

A Brief History

In October 1976 as the activities of teaching and research in the department were growing, a mathematical reading room was established with books and journals donated by the students and faculty. Beginning from 1977 with financial supports coming from the University and National Science Council, the departmental library was formed and the collections of books and periodicals have been expanding ever since. In January 1990 the library of department of mathematics was renamed the Branch Library of Mathematics and formally became part of the university library system.
