Thousands of books, periodicals, national and international journals covering all aspects of academic studies and research material is what you’ll find in the library at Alhosn University. We also provide online access to some of the most in-demand online journals including Oxford, Cambridge and Nature.
The library has two manual circulation desks for checking out. In addition, we also have a “Self Check-in” & “Self Check-out” service through kiosks that are operational 24/7. This gives students the freedom to borrow and return books throughout the week.
Our students are overwhelmingly happy about this service as it allows them to access the library at their convenience. This automated circulation system revamped the library’s circulation desk and we further upgraded the self-check equipment with RFID security. Library material is now back on the shelves within 24 hours of the return date.
Our mobile app also allows students to renew their loans from anywhere, which helps students avoid overdue charges on loaned material.
