Qatar University Library has undergone several important developmental changes since its establishment in 1973. However, the most notable change took place in 1985, when the university made the move to its permanent campus. With the increase in students, faculty, and staff volume, the need for an additional building became evident. In 1992, a new library building was constructed on the men's campus. The women’s library facility consists of four-story building with a total area of 1,200 square meters, and houses circulation, reference, and technical services. The men’s facility consists of a two-story building with an area of 3,000 square meters, offering circulation and reference services. Another important change to QU library system came about in 1987, with the introduction of automation. This was achieved with the help of MINISIS Integrated Library System, developed by IDRC of Canada, and arabicized by the Arab League's Department of Information. The library serves QU students, faculty, staff, and researchers, as well as patrons from the general public (by special arrangement). The library is at the core of your research and learning at Qatar University. It is our goal to support your curriculum needs, and to contribute to the quality of your overall learning experience here at Qatar University.
