Proffessor Gáspár Biró Library
The library is no ordinary administration of the University or a technical service. It represents a professional unit of the academic institution which serves faculty, students and administration staff and supports the process of teaching, learning and conducting research. In a traditional way, a library can be defined as a collection of books or a collection of useful materials to use.
Some of the books in the library are purchased with the University funds and the others are derived from exchange of books with other libraries. The library of the Macedonian Academy for Sciences and Art (MASA), has donated all book titles which have been translated to Macedonian language, as part of the project implemented by the Government of the Republic of Macedonia entitled: “Project to translate 500 books”.
Since the year of 2008, the UACS Library has started publishing titles.
Apart from these books, the UACS Library has published a number of readers, scripts and books in an electronic form, according to the rules prescribed by the home library (NUL) in Macedonia, which are also contained in the UACS Rules of Publishing.
The library is an integral part of the University and is divided in two parts, a library and reading room. The library is not open to the public, which means that it requires a registration, i.e. payment of an annual membership fee, and it is only available to UACS students, faculty and administration.
The library has more than 2340 titles (domestic and foreign literature), and has a library fund of over 9500 books, including scripts, readers, reference literature, reading books from instructors and reading texts. Besides these books the library has a collection of PhD and MBA Thesis which are defended at UACS.
The library material is processed according to UDC (Universal Decimal Classification), which has been used in the COBISS system for searching literature and each book has its own code. (In process)
Case studies from Harvard Business School are provided to UACS students as part of the learning process.
