DANISH :a society for promoting knowledge

CIIT Lahore Library is a hub of knowledge and provides information services to faculty and students. The library also organized different programs to enhance the reading habits among library patrons. Information literacy programs, orientation sessions, Book Fairs, Celebration of World Book Day are the major sources for the library to not only interact with the library users but also to market the library resources to its patrons.
