The work of compiling an electronic catalogue has begun more than 10 years ago. It became the basis of the on-line documentation-search system providing the multi-aspect data search of the library documents. The volume of the electronic catalogue is 85000 bibliographic notes. The electronic catalogue is an integral part of the library. It is an analogue of the print catalogue, but with more search opportunities.
Along with the book fund there is a formation of an electronic library (e-library) the data base of which numbers to 2 860 copies of electronic carriers and that comprises of e-books, lectures, electronic copies of inaccessible and rarest monographs, study guides, and full-text data bases created in our university. The electronic library includes the electronic copies of the «Herald of Sh. Ualikhanov Kokshetau State University», the university newspaper «Alau», the educational-methodological complexes and electronic text-books developed by the scientists and teachers of the university. The electronic library is represented at the automated information system «Platonus» and at the Republican inter-university electronic library (RIEL) since its creation. The RIEL unites electronic, educational and scientific resources of the universities of Kazakhstan and operates in the framework of the Association of the universities of the Republic of Kazakhstan.
