Ahlia Library

Ahlia University subscribes to the philosophy that provision of state-of-the-art library resources to its students and faculty member lies at the heart of the mission of any institution of higher learning. To this end, Ahlia library maintains a dedicated collection of conventional books clustered to the knowledge spheres of the disciplines of various colleges spanning: computer science and information systems; applied mathematics, statistics and operations research; accounting, banking, economics, finance, management and marketing; communications and public relations; medical science and physiotherapy; and interior and graphic design.

Ahlia University Library is the first of its kind in the Gulf Countries to implement (radio frequency identification) RFID technology-based “Virtua” Library Management System. The RFID system provides for security of print and other circulatory material based on electronic chips. In view of technological developments, however, Ahlia, in terms of its investment in knowledge media, regards electronic libraries as increasingly taking precedence over conventional libraries in as much as electronic libraries reach out to all their patrons from their desktops. Consonant with its progressive approach to knowledge management, Ahlia University has implemented a Digital Library to cater to the present and future informational needs of its student-body and faculty.
