Assistant College Librarian (Acquisition and Collection), Ms Yolanda Tan Huiyan explained the necessity for UIC to get international books as the college's language of instruction is English. She said, “We have book agents come here in order for students and staff to choose the books they want to read and the books they think would be helpful for research as well as for the different departments across campus.”
