Welcome Message

The Library’s website is our gateway to our resources and services. The library website aims to provide a brief introduction to the facilities and services provided by the library, library operating hours and other basic information pertaining to the library. The Library is the backbone of the research and development activities of ADUN. ADUN Library is an integral part of the university and designed to meet the information, research, and curriculum needs of its students, faculty and staff members.

ADUN, which was founded in 2017 commenced academic activities officially in January 2019. The Library is centrally at the North-East angle of the University main campus and directly opposite the Faculty of Science complex. Activities kick started in the ‘almost empty Library complex’ in January 28th with a total of 1,527 volumes of books and journals alongside other staff as the library nucleus. From that time until now, the Library continues to provide the University community with useful information services.
