Under the framework of the Inter-University Cooperation Project, the development of the library is given priority along with the establishment of e-library.
On the 9th of December, a handover ceremony of law books was organised at the Faculty of Law and Political Science (FLP). The ceremony was attended by Assoc. Prof. Viengvilay Thiengchanxay, the Dean of the FLP, Dr. Somdeth Keovongsak, Vice Dean, Dr. Perrine Simon, the Project’s Liaison Officer, along with other FLP lecturers. The Project handed over 391 printed textbooks, in Thai and English, to the FLP, National University of Laos. Along with these books, the University of Luxembourg will also support a one-month capacity building training for FLP librarians in collaboration with Thai librarians as soon as the covid-19 restrictions will be lifted.
The purchase and delivery of books, as well as the capacity training, were arranged under an agreement between UNI.lu and EIFL-Thailand, a commercial establishment of distribution of educational books and journals. This acquisition and delivery of textbooks and training was fully supported financially by the University of Luxembourg.
Together with the establishment of the e-library, this acquisition of books will provide the FLP library with a comprehensive collection of books in the field of law. This marks a significant step in improving access to legal knowledge and strengthening legal higher education of both students and teachers.
