AIT Library Collection
The Library operates according to international library standards. The Dewey Decimal Classification System of the 21st edition is used (D.D.C. 21). The subject indexing follows the Congress Library standards (Library of Congress, Subject Headings). The cataloguing is based on the Anglo-American Rules of Cataloguing of the second edition. The Library uses the Advance 6.7 15 library program.
The core of the collection is composed of foreign titles in the fields of computer science, electronics, telecommunications, technology management, and reference material (dictionaries, encyclopedias, bibliographies). It also houses AIT students’ independent studies, theses, and scientific work of AIT’s faculty. The Library also includes the series “Ancient Greek Literature” and “History of the Greek Nation” as a special part of the collection.
The AIT library welcomes donations of books and journals in the fields of computer science, electronics, telecommunications, technology management, and reference material (dictionaries, encyclopedias, bibliographies). The Library houses an open collection for the public, which is continually enriched. To date we have received generous grants from individuals, publishing groups (such as Ephesus Publishing), professors, students, members of INTRACOM Group of Companies, etc, which add significant value to our collection and benefit all AIT students and staff.
AIT library welcomes and fosters donations of material (books and journals “sitting” on your shelves or extra copies lying around your office but useful for our collection and users’ needs) that conform to its collection development standards. AIT Library houses an open collection to public, which is continually enriched with printed material, especially in the subject fields it covers. Until now, it has accepted generous grants from individuals and other sources (publishing groups such as Ephesus Publishing, professors, students, members of INTRACOM Group of Companies, etc), which add significant value to its collection and benefit for all AIT students and staff.
The Selective Bibliography (SB) is a collection of book titles chosen by AIT professors in cooperation with the Library staff and aims to support the curricula of the Masters programs. The Selective Bibliography is filed separately under the classification “SB” – referenced on the spine of each book
For each course, a selection of reference books is available in three copies each. The copies from the Selective Bibliography are loaned for a period of five days and may be renewed after at least one week has elapsed from the return date.
At the beginning of each semester, the Library provides students with a list of textbooks and reference books for their respective courses, many of which are drawn from the Selective Bibliography.
