Engineering Accreditation Council (EAC) Accreditation Assessment Visit to Gambang Library - 13th Jan 2022

After almost two years without a physical audit visit, UMP Gambang Library received an Engineering Accreditation Council (EAC) visit for an accreditation evaluation. The accreditation evaluation was for UMP Bachelor (Hons) in Chemical Engineering (Part-Time) programme which was done on January 13, 2022.

The accreditation evaluation was done with the intention of renewing the accreditation certificate previously received by the College of Engineering. Thus, a visit to the library is one of the evaluation requirements aimed to evaluate the facilities and services offered to library users, particularly students for the audited programme.

There were two panellists: Prof. Ir. Dr. Siti Mazlina Binti Mustapa Kamal from Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM) and Prof. Madya Ir. Dr. Siti Shawalliah Binti Idris from Universiti Teknologi MARA (UiTM). They were accompanied by staff from the Centre for Academic Innovation and Competitiveness (PIDA). The evaluation visit started at 11.00 am with an introduction to the facilities provided to library users presented by Mr. Ahmad Nurudin Bin Abd. Nasir, Senior Librarian of the Marketing Section. The panel was thoroughly briefed on the facilities provided through information displayed on the library portal.
Next, the panel was briefed on the collection available in the library by Puan Affida Binti Abu Bakar, Senior Librarian of the Education & Research Section. The panel also was briefed on the search platform for printed and electronic collections. During this session, the panel asked about the library's initiatives in promoting the use of electronic collections and the use of such materials among students.

The library through several initiatives has conducted several consumer promotions as well as consumer education programs to help students better understand the electronic material search guide. In addition, the panel asked Mrs. Affida to use the eFind platform to search for materials in the field of 'Chemistry Engineering.

Before the session ended, the panel also inquired about the writing materials of UMP academic staff and conference papers in UMP Institutional Repository (UMPR-IR). Overall, the audit visit this time went smoothly. Thank you to all the staff at the library who have been involved throughout this evaluation session.
