Library and Academic Resources

Abu Dhabi Polytechnic has a well-equipped library and study hall with a growing collection of resources. The library is designed to support the Diploma, Higher Diploma, and Applied Bachelor technical programs through a wide collection of books, journals, electronic resources, and on-line databases which provide links to full text articles. The library information technology infrastructure includes work stations connected to the internet to allow students to access the most recent articles. The library is staffed by well qualified and experienced library professionals who work with the Heads of the technical programs to identify the needs of the students for a wide range of books and other resources, conduct information skills programs to enable students to find, retrieve, and use the academic resources efficiently, and encourage and teach students to access and research scholarly journals and resources. See the section entitled Library Policies and Procedures for more information.
