Library History


The development of BINUS UNIVERSITY library had been carried out since 1982 to support the university in achieving Tri Dharma Perguruan Tinggi, those are learning activities, research, and social services. The names of Binus library had undergone  many times of changes that was  in line with the change of its parent organization’s names. The first name was Akademi Teknik Komputer (ATK) library. In 1986 the name changed to Sekolah Tinggi Manajemen Informatika dan Komputer BINA NUSANTARA library, and finally since in 1996 the library name changed To BINUS  UNIVERSITY library.

Library service to students and lecturers started in 1982. The library was located at Syahdan Campus, Jalan K.H. Syahdan  no.9, Kemanggisan, Palmerah, Jakarta Barat. The library was located at the L building, first floor, having space of ±150m2. The service was still in closed access services. In line with   BINUS UNIVERSITY development, the library service was also developed. In 1986 the library room was moved at the M building, first floor. Then, in 1994, the library was again moved at the K and J building, and the automation system was conducted by applying Visual Foxpro program. Meanwhile, the service was still in closed access service. A significant development happened in 1998 when the library was moved into a new modern building in Anggrek Campus, Jalan Kebon Jeruk Raya No. 27 Jakarta Barat. The library was located at the third, fourth, and fifth floors having a space of 1.268m2.

Full library automation had been applied in 1999. The automated system was called Sistem Informasi Perpustakaan (SIPus), including acquisition, cataloguing, and circulation. The library had fully applied open access services, in which the users were independent  to access library collections. An automated service was given to library users. The LKC aims to provide a better service to support the curriculum offering of the university.

In 2008, LKC moved to first floor, having space of ±1400m². At the new building,  LKC provided discussion room and  recreation room. With the availability of these new facilities, the library users got more convenient place to study and do their social academic life. Information literacy program was conducted more intensely for library users done by reference librarians and the availability of mobile librarians who guided the students personally or by groups to lead them into independent users who were capable in finding information and use them ethically and legally. Automated borrowing and returning was applied by RFID system. In 2010 Library café was available in at the Recreation Room.

In the year of 2011 Alam Sutra bridging Campus was established on the basis of the high demand of parents and students in Tangerang. Along with the opening of the bridging campus, on February 2012, Alam Sutra library and knowledge center was officially opened to support the needs of information.

LKC Alam Sutera also adopted the Automated borrowing using RFID system. Users can also search for LKC Alam Sutera collections through library website since the database were also integrated with Anggrek, Kijang, JWC Library and knowledge center.

JWC Library

On September 2001, The Joseph Wibowo Centre (JWC) library located at Jalan Hang Lekir I No. 6 was officially opened. The library caters the lecturers, postgraduate and international students. The JWC library adopted an open access service and its development was still under the coordination of Anggrek Central Library. On August 2007 its name was change to LKC-JWC Library.   An intra library loan was added to the service that concerns with circulation between Anggrek and JWC libraries.

BINUS UNIVERSITY Library’s continuous improvement was still conducted. In 2002, library started the website services, in which users were able to search the    books, booking the collections, as well as extending the borrowing via library website. Developing e-local content was also started on that year where in thesis S1, thesis S2, Binus articles, and clippings are made available via website access.

Kijang

Kijang Library had been operated since Januari 2006, under the coordination of Anggrek Central Library.
In August  2007, the function  of Anggrek Central Library  had been expanded  into a knowledge centre,  and it was  called Library and Knowledge Center (LKC). This new function accommodated information and knowledge creation as the results of teaching and learning process, as well as research activities in Binus university. Since that time, the library was called Library and Knowledge Center or LKC.

As the consequences of LKC name,  Kijang library changed its name became LKC Kijang. Located in a room having space of 170m2,  LKC Kijang mainly provide the collections for the  English, Chinese , and Japanese  Department because these  departments are located at the Kijang Campus  and most of Faculty of Language and Culture’s activities were conducted there. LKC Kijang also supported the operation of Self Access Language Learning Unit (SALLC) which is also located in the same room. Combining both printed and multimedia collection for language learning activities has become an advantage. In 2010 SALLC  was developed into Language  Center and moved at the new place, so LKC Kijang is now occupying the whole room.

Pengembangan Perpustakaan BINUS UNIVERSITY telah dirintis sejak tahun 1982 guna mendukung kegiatan Tri Darma Perguruan Tinggi, yaitu kegiatan belajar mengajar, penelitian, dan pengabdian kepada masyarakat.. Perpustakaan telah mengalami beberapa kali pergantian nama seiring dengan pergantian nama perguruan tinggi itu sendiri. Nama pertama yang dipakai adalah Perpustakaan Akademik Teknik Komputer (ATK) dan menjadi Perpustakaan Sekolah Tinggi Manajemen Informatika dan Komputer BINA NUSANTARA pada tahun 1986. Nama yang hingga kini masih melekat sejak tahun 1996 adalah Perpustakaan BINUS UNIVERSITY.

Tahun 1982 adalah awal pemberian jasa kepada civitas akademika BINUS UNIVERSITY. Lokasi perpustakaan berada di Kampus Syahdan, Jl. Kh. Syahdan No. 9, Kemanggisan, Palmerah, Jakarta Barat. Perpustakaan menempati gedung L lantai dasar seluas ±150m2. Jasa layanan yang diberikan menggunakan sistem manual dan tertutup (closed access services), artinya pengguna tidak dapat langsung menuju rak koleksi untuk mencari atau mendapatkan koleksi yang diinginkannya Seiring dengan perkembangan BINUS UNIVERSITY, layanan yang diberikanpun semakin berkembang. Tahun 1986 Perpustakaan berpindah tempat ke gedung M lantai dasar. Tahun 1994 Perpustakaan menempati gedung K dan J, dengan sistem perpustakaan yang sudah terkomputerisasi (otomasi) dan menggunakan program Visual Foxpro. Sementara, layanan sirkulasi masih menggunakan sistem layanan tertutup. Bulan November 1998 perpustakaan kembali pindah menempati gedung baru di Kampus Anggrek, Jl. Kebon Jeruk Raya No. 27 Jakarta Barat, lokasi perpustakaan terletak di lantai III, IV, dan V, dengan luas ±1268m2.

Tahun 1999 layanan perpustakaan telah terkomputerisasi dengan sistem informasi yang kemudian diberi nama Sistem Informasi Perpustakaan (SIPus). SIPus ini meliputi layanan bagian pengadaan, pengolahan, serta sirkulasi. Sistem layananpun sudah terbuka (open access sevices), sehingga mahasiswa, dosen, dan karyawan dapat mencari buku sendiri di rak. Jasa peminjaman koleksi diberikan kepada mereka yang menjadi anggota perpustakaan. Diharapkan dengan berubahnya sistem layanan, UPT Perpustakaan akan semakin dekat dengan penggunanya.

Pada September 2001, Perpustakaan The Joseph Wibowo Centre (JWC) yang berlokasi di Jalan Hang Lekir I No. 6 resmi dibuka. Perpustakaan JWC khusus melayani dosen, mahasiswa S2, dan Kelas Internasional dengan sistem layanan terbuka (open access services). Mahasiswa dan dosen S1 hanya dapat mengunjungi atau membaca di tempat koleksi perpustakaan JWC.

Perkembangan UPT Perpustakaan BINUS UNIVERSITY terus berlanjut hingga tahun 2002 dengan terus dikembangkannya SIPus dengan beberapa penambahan-penambahan layanan. SIPus yang baru saat ini sudah dapat melayani melayani penggunanya yang ingin menelusur, memesan (booking), dan memperpanjang pinjaman buku via web.

Agustus 2007, Perpustakaan BINUS UNIVERSITY mengembangkan fungsi sebagai Knowledge Center sesuai dengan Visi Binus 20/20. Fungsi ini mengakomodir proses penciptaan informasi dan pengetahuan yang sesuai dengan kegiatan universitas. Seiring dengan bertambahnya fungsi yang dijalankan, Perpustakaan BINUS UNIVERSITY dikenal dengan nama Library and Knowledge Center disingkat menjadi LKC.

Tahun 2008 LKC pindah menempati ruangan baru di gedung Kampus Anggrek extention lantai 1 seluas ±1400m². Di gedung ini, LKC menyediakan fasilitas ruang diskusi dan ruang rekreasi. Diharapkan dengan penambahan fasilitas ini animo pengguna semakin besar dalam mengunjungi perpustakaan juga menambah kenyamanan bagi pengguna selama berada di perpustakaan. Disini LKC juga memakai sistem baru untuk layanan peminjaman dan pengembalian buku dengan RFID. Dimana mahasiswa dapat juga melakukan auto borrowing dan auto returning buku.
