About the Library


The University of Kurdistan Hewlêr (UKH) Library was established in September 2006. Its mandate to implement and maintain international standards and quality services to all users and to robustly support the delivery of academic courses through its services and products.

Today it is managed by professionally trained Librarians and a team of assistants. It is open twelve hours a day during semester time (generally eight hours a day outside semester time) to enable all students, faculty, staff and visitors every opportunity to have the greatest access to the Library’s resources.

While being rigorous in upholding the international laws for copyright, intellectual property and freedom of information, the Library has succeeded in building a solid academic collection with electronic access to millions of articles, research papers and leading journals.

The university is in the process of upgrading the Library Catalogue to increase the system’s robustness and user experience.
