Library of Xinjiang Normal University

The library of Xinjiang Normal University was founded in April 1979. At that time, there were only six staff members. The collection was mainly books and periodicals of the former Sanping Xinjiang teacher training department in Urumqi. The business work was limited to book purchasing and preliminary processing, with only a small number of readers borrowing. With the support of all previous school leaders and the joint efforts of all teachers, students, and staff, it has gone through nearly 20 years of the development process of the establishment (1979-1982), development (1983-1993), and improvement (1994-2004). It has become the window of spiritual civilization and the garden of teaching and scientific research of Xinjiang Normal University.






The school has set up a library and Information Committee, with the vice president and the librarian in charge of the library and information work as the principal and deputy directors. Every year, the school holds a meeting to listen to the opinions of all parties, study and discuss the library and information work of the whole school and put forward guiding opinions for the overall development of the library. The library implements the director responsibility system under the leadership of the president.

In terms of the construction of electronic literature resources, we have ordered China academic journal database, Wanfang doctoral thesis data (30000 papers), and founder Apabi digital book full-text database (32000 e-books). The foreign language database includes Springer's electronic journal database. The introduction of these databases has further improved the structure and allocation of library resources and played an important role in teaching and scientific research.

The construction of library automation was started in 1995. LAN is a bus structure, which is connected by a coaxial cable. Automatic management software is a pubis management system developed by Peking University Library. There are two servers, 486. There are six 386 computers for acquisition, cataloging, and circulation, which realize the automatic management of acquisition, cataloging, and circulation of Chinese books. In October 2001, we began to test the automation system by using the network of the first phase project of the campus network; In March 2002, the old automation system was replaced and the new ILASII system was adopted. At present, the library website has been established, including online bibliographic data retrieval, China academic journal full-text database (CNKI), Apabi founder e-book database, Wanfang China excellent doctoral thesis database, spring link Springer foreign journal database, which enriches the information resources and digital resources of the campus network, and realizes the resource sharing in the campus network.
