21-September-2011

Guests at the hand-over of books and opening of the new library

The university’s vice-chancellor and president Dr Rolph Payet had the honour of cutting the ribbon and gave guests the chance to view the new library.

This was followed by donation of books from the Government of Seychelles–United Nations Development Programme (UNDP)-Global Environment Facility (GEF), the British Council and the Embassy of the Sovereign Military Order of Malta.

The ceremony was held in the presence of environment principal secretary Didier Dogley, British Council’s director Dawn Long, French Ambassador Philippe Delacroix and Alexandra Azais, Chargée d’Affaires from the Embassy of the Sovereign Military Order of Malta.

There were also other high government officials.
The British Council donated over 700 books to the university. These included marketing, English Literature and Business Management textbooks.

These books were presented by Mrs Long who said a well stocked library is an important resource for any university.
“I am sure that UniSey students will make good use of these quality books, written by experts in their field.”
Mrs Azais gave a series of Italian/Creole dictionaries to the university.

She said these dictionaries will definitely help those learning Italian to learn much faster.

There were also environmental books from the Government of Seychelles–UNDP-GEF presented by Mr Dogley.

He said these reference materials on environment issues will help students in their research work and ensure that they have sufficient materials for their studies.

Dr Payet said a university without books is like a university without a soul.

“The donation of books will definitely be of great importance to the students and help them in their courses.”

He also thanked all the sponsors for supporting the university and its students.
