The department has embraced internationalization by starting up various collaborations with ‘The International Society for Science and Religion Library Project based in the UK’, ‘The University of Louisville, USA’, Linnaeus University, Sweden and ‘The University of Oslo, Norway’. These collaborations have placed the department on the international map and in positive light through the acquisition of book awards, scholarships and staff exchange.
