The AIU Library is a repository centre for knowledge and a hub of information sharing and exchange. It houses a collection of printed and non-printed materials to accommodate the learning, teaching and research needs and activities of the University. It also provides all the necessary services, facilities and infrastructure as well as a conducive environment that promotes learning.
The four-storey library building is constructed in the Safavid style of architectural design. The most interesting and attractive feature of the library is a replica of the Dome of the Rock which is also known as Masjid Qubbat As-Sakhrah. The Dome of the Rock or Qubbat As-Sakhrah is the crowning glory of the Haram Als-Sharif in Jerusalem and it is the oldest Islamic monument that stands today and certainly one of the most beautiful.
The primary role of the library is to facilitate the academic and administrative activities by providing:
- A balance of printed and non-printed resources that fulfill academic needs.
- Informative and light reading materials that develop and enrich skills, spiritual well-being, creativity, competency and personality traits and values.
- State-of-the-art facilities and infrastructure.
- Efficient and reliable services.
