1.  Brief Introduction of the School Library

        Since the foundation in the fall of 1941, after several times of expansion, the library collection reaches a total of about over 1.2 million copies, of which there are about over 500,000 paper books (over 300,000 bound periodicals), 700,000 electronic books(200,000 local mirror images), 14,000 electronic journals, 15,000 electronic reading (CD), and 500 various kinds of periodicals and newspapers. It is an open shelf for all the faculty and students. According to the characteristics of library work, there is an Office of the library director, Department of Resource Construction (an interview room and an editing room), Department of Modern Technology (an electronic reading room and a multimedia reading room), Department of Reader Service (a periodical reading room, a reference room and a circulation desk), Department of Intelligence Consulting. There are 18 staff, of whom 6 have master’s degrees, 9 have bachelor’s degrees, 8 have intermediate or above titles. In terms of management, it adopts Huiwen Library Management System, the higher education resource sharing platform in Jiangsu Province, which conducts opac online retrieval. There is a theme website of the library, offering 24 hours’ network information and resources service to faculty and students on campus. Besides, it self-builds a database of discipline navigation and specialty according to characteristics of NIRT, providing relevant information of each subject website and collection of paper journals for faculty and students. The library opens over 80 hours each week (including weekends). The annual circulation is over 100,000 copies.

The new library of NIRT opened officially in September, 2012, covers an area of 23,000 square meters with 2,000 seats. The learning environment is elegant, comfortable with well-equipped and advanced facilities, which realizes the integrated open service of 6 functions, which are collection, lending, reading, searching, consultation and education. The official opening of the new library will further improve its service level.

2.   Comprehensive Railway Training Center

Initially founded in 1984, after several times of technological transformation, and with 10 million yuan investment, the Comprehensive Railway Training Center covers an area of 735 square meters with a 109 meter long sand table. It was reconstructed according to the 6th railway speed-up key equipment standard in July, 2007, and has formed the multifunctional training center with the largest size and the most advanced equipment including 10 railway stations in China. The “five in one” functions are teaching, scientific researching, training, occupational skill identification, and engineering experiment.

The center is mainly responsible for the integrated teaching of theory and practice and multiple skill training in railway transportation, railway signal and communication, railway communication and other majors. Specifically, it provides the genuine environment for train operation command and the comprehensive training of train reception and departure in railway transportation major, railway signal communication, and fault search in railway communication major. It is able to meet the engineering experiment requirement of live railway staff training, teachers’ scientific research and scientific research units. Meanwhile, it can also be used as the base for railway signal occupational skill identification training and test. Through the genuine environment, students’ skills of fundamental profession and abilities of question analysis and resolving will be trained; their basic skills, hardworking spirit and occupational quality will be cultivated.


3.  Training base of High Speed Railway dispatching and command system

Initially founded in 1984 and with the strong support and help from the Education Department of Jiangsu Province, Shanghai Railway Bureau and each station, the training base of high speed railway dispatching and command system have been through numerous technical transformation, and its equipment and technology is always consistent with the railway development. In July, 2012, with another over 10 million yuan investment, the new training base of high speed railway dispatching and command system was built on the fourth floor in the national high speed railway training base in 300 km/h based on the Shanghai-Nanjing section of Beijing-Shanghai high speed railway. The construction covers an area of 735 square meters, with a 110 meter long sand table, and has formed the multifunctional training center with the largest size and the most advanced equipment including 8 railway stations such as Nanjing South Railway Station and Shanghai Hongqiao Railway Station in China. The “five in one” functions are teaching, scientific researching, training, occupational skill identification, and engineering experiment.
