The Library's Mission


The mission of the University of Central Asia Libraries (henceforth referred to as 'The Library') is to support the University’s curriculum and programme of instruction, and to facilitate the creation of knowledge on the part of students, faculty, and researchers affiliated with the University and its constituent institutes and agencies. The Library supports individual and collaborative research, whether focused on a particular discipline or interdisciplinary in nature. The Library seeks to expand and fulfill the aspirations of the University's students, enable the University’s faculty and researchers to be rewardingly engaged with their disciplines, and promote the social and economic development of Central Asia. The Library pursues these goals by ensuring access to a relevant and effective collection, and providing an array of services and instruction regarding the use of the collections.
