Through its vast collection and the services it provides, our library
aims to support teaching/instruction and research activities at
our university, to meet students’ and faculty members’ needs for
information in their academic programs and scientific research,
and to contribute to improved access to information for the
whole EMU community and the larger public.
Our library endeavors to constantly improve its performance as
an active supporter and provider for the university’s effective,
innovative, and student-centered approach to education, and as
an indispensable element in the academic process based on this
approach. In keeping with its significant role in both the
qualitative and quantitative aspects of scientific research, our
library strives to create all the necessary facilities and
opportunities for all students and members of academic staff, in
the process of conducting research and accessing information.
Preparing students not only for their profession, but also for
life is part of the university’s objectives. Within this
framework, we, as the library, do our utmost in ensuring that
our students can locate all types of data in a systematic
environment, in order to contribute to the education of
sensitive young people who have learned how to learn and are
keen to research and are capable of generating knowledge based
on acquired knowledge.

universal gain, our library actively collaborates with
institutions of information sources, and shares its own
resources with the world insofar as circumstances allow.

publications throughout the rest of the world while
simultaneously making it easier to obtain information available
from other sources.

habit of lifelong learning in our society, our collection is
