About Library

Welcome to the Abu Dhabi University (ADU) Library. The ADU Library serves as the primary information source for students, faculty and staff of the University, as well others who visit the University. By combining the latest information technology with excellent public service, the library staff builds and maintains a rich information environment, facilitates access to it, and creates a place that functions as a hub of campus and community for scholarly activities.

The library and collections are designed to be as accessible as possible, incorporating the latest technology for immediate access to print and electronic materials, study areas, as well as computer labs and media equipment services. Well-trained librarians are available to assist you; whether you are searching for in-depth information or simply browsing for a book or a magazine to enjoy, the staff is here to help you locate these materials.

The library collection incorporates many genres of materials directly related to the current University curriculum, as well as traditional subjects and most popular interests.
