About the Library

The university library of FEATI serves the information needs of its six colleges, namely College of Architecture, School of Fine Arts, College of Arts and Sciences, College of Engineering, College of Business and College of Maritime Education. Located at Bldg. 2, 4th Floor, it houses all the different types of learning resources that support the curricular includements of the various colleges.

Part of FEATI’s modernization thrust is to upgrade the library facilities and resources. In 2004 about 5,000 new book titles on the various courses offered were purchased. What remained of the book collection after weeding-out and discarding outdated editions were re-cataloged from the Dewey Decimal Cataloging to Library of Congress classification system. From closed-system where books were kept in glass-shelves under lock, these are now on open-shelves allowing students a free access to the library materials. Students are now able to find specific titles through the Online Public Access Catalog (OPAC). Library operations which have been computerized include cataloging and lending of books. In January 2006, the university library transferred to the newly constructed and re-designed library. With glass walls surrounding the library area, library users enjoy a clear view of the Pasig River and the nearby historic landmarks in Manila. New books, comfortable study desks and chairs, air-conditioned and carpeted study areas contribute to an increase in the volume of library visitors since the transfer to the new site.

            Mandated to support the vision/mission of the university, the library vision/mission statement is reflective of the FEATI dream.
