In 1995, the Center received book donations from external sources and bought additional volumes of books in preparation for its first level accreditation. After two years, the Center was granted the second level accreditation in Teacher Education and Graduate School. The First Re-survey accreditation was awarded in 1998. Since then, its facilities and holdings have increased and developed into a more customer-oriented service provider. It did not stop supporting the academic programs for accreditation level of teacher education programs and other programs of the university.
