1. Collection works

Under the guidance of the collection policy of "ensuring the traditional dominant disciplines, inclining the key disciplines, and giving consideration to the new disciplines", our library has formed a relatively systematic and complete comprehensive collection system after long-term accumulation. So far, our library has collected more than 1.1 million Chinese and foreign books and more than 2200 periodicals, covering almost all disciplines of our university, especially the collection of heavy machinery and related professional books and periodicals. At the same time, the library has strengthened the resource construction with electronic resources as the leading direction, and the reader training and information navigation with network resources and electronic resources services as the main contents. The library has more than 800000 kinds of e-books, more than 50 network commercial databases, and 6 self-built characteristic databases. Among them, the characteristic database of "heavy machinery digital library" is funded by CALIS of the Ministry of Education.

Our library is the director unit, and the management center of the "Provincial Digital Library" is also located in our library. Over the past four years, the operation of the "provincial high number map" has initially realized the resource sharing of colleges and universities in our province, saved a lot of money, promoted the cooperation and exchange of colleges and universities, and promoted the digital construction process of our province.
