LIS contributes to the university's commitment to the advancement of knowledge and enrichment of culture by providing innovative scholarly information services. It works in partnership with the university's scholarly community to provide scholarly resources, facilitate scholarly communication, and to provide environments that foster reading, enquiry, research and critical thought.

Universal Document Converter is equal with Adobe Acrobat in terms of providing a generic document format that any user on any platform can view. Further in some cases it is better than Acrobat simply because you do not need to install a special viewer. Combining these advantages with the easy of use and the ease of outputting your documents to a graphic file format makes Universal Document Converter a must for any business, webmaster or individual user.
