Talking about the history of the University Library Upt Tadulako, of course, is inseparable from the history of the University Tadulako as their parent institutions. In other words, the embryo Tadulako is the result of a merger between the University of Filial Tadulako Hasanuddin University (UNHAS) with the Institute of Teacher Training and Education (Teachers ‘Training College) Branch Palu class sebaga away from Ujung Pandang Teachers’ Training College.
Tadulako as a filial of Unhas has had its own library, as well as classes Teachers ‘Training College Palu branch away from the Teachers’ Training College Ujung Pandang. The existence of the library when it was still very limited, both in terms of collection, management and services and the availability of human resources as managers.
