Chapter Preview


In 2001, the Library of STIE Perbanas Surabaya started to develop and employ its digital collection center, which stored soft-copy data from financial statement of companies listed in the Indonesia Stock Exchange to periodical financial statement of banking corporations. Progressively, in year 2006, the library has managed to develop digitalized collection of theses, thus enabling users, especially students, to support the learning process in pursuit of research or thesis program.

At times, services to support such needs are implemented through Layanan Penelusuran Informasi (Information Search Service) open to users both internal and external (students from neighboring universities). Yet, they are still off-line, as it requires a person to be present at the library. Therefore, it will be more useful and of the most benefits if this valuable information is shared online and integrated with the library website.

The online system will create more value to its users by providing up-to-date and time-efficient banking-financial information, especially in order to maximize users in completing their studies or thesis works.

Availability and accessibility of banking and financial data at anytime and anywhere is of the utmost importance in order to support the education process in banking and business fields. As a higher education institution affiliated in INHERENT network (DIKTI/higher education ministry network) and storing a sufficient amount of banking and financial data, STIE Perbanas Surabaya calls for the necessity of developing such an information system which has not yet been developed by other universities.

Encouraged by vision to implement a banking-finance database and information center which is accessible through the network of INHERENT and/or Internet, the Library of STIE Perbanas Surabaya created its Repository Banking and Finance (ReBaF).

It is in line with the vision of the Library of STIE Perbanas Surabaya as business and banking information center, which provides financial and banking data in delivering education to society and related industries. As an output, ReBaF is expected to improve the fulfillment of various needs from users upon banking and financial data and information.
