Intermediate Library

The Ewing Memorial Library – College Section, was established in 2010 as a separate library for Intermediate students in the Susheela Building, room 026. It contains books on topics of general interest which are housed in a closed shelf system. Four computer workstations are also available in the library for general searching and internet browsing, which students can reserve for a period of one hour. To maintain an environment conducive for studying, the library is a silent area and discussions are not allowed.


Library Portal on Web

The Ewing Memorial Library has launched its web-based Information Portal (I-Portal) which can be accessed anytime from anywhere, through Students can search the library catalogue and login to their accounts to view their activity information, for instance checking the overdue books and fines, and renewing books online among others.  I-Portal also holds information about newly arrived books and journals and the encyclopedia, dictionaries and other reference materials. Access to the HEC Digital Library is also available through Library I Portal.


Religious Life

For Christian students, we offer regular Chapel programs and Bible study groups, as well as a variety of opportunities for volunteer service. The College Chaplain has an office located in the back of the ICF Building (behind the chapel). There is also a mentoring program in place for minority students run by Dr Christy Munir. His office is located in the Armacost Building, room 122. For Muslim students, we have two mosques on campus and Juma prayers are held each Friday in the larger mosque. Class timings are shifted on Friday so that all students who wish to do so may attend. We also organize Dars-e-Quran classes together with symposia and discussions.
