Özay Oral Library


Through its vast collection and the services it provides, our library aims to support teaching/instruction and research activities at our university, to meet students’ and faculty members’ needs for information in their academic programs and scientific research, and to contribute to improved access to information for the whole EMU community and the larger public.


Our library endeavors to constantly improve its performance as an active supporter and provider for the university’s effective, innovative, and student-centered approach to education, and as an indispensable element in the academic process based on this approach. In keeping with its significant role in both the qualitative and quantitative aspects of scientific research, our library strives to create all the necessary facilities and opportunities for all students and members of academic staff, in the process of conducting research and accessing information. Preparing students not only for their profession, but also for life is part of the university’s objectives. Within this framework, we, as the library, do our utmost in ensuring that our students can locate all types of data in a systematic environment, in order to contribute to the education of sensitive young people who have learned how to learn and are keen to research and are capable of generating knowledge based on acquired knowledge.

Consistent with its conviction that scientific development is a universal gain, our library actively collaborates with institutions of information sources, and shares its own resources with the world insofar as circumstances allow. Cooperation makes it possible to promote our university’s publications throughout the rest of the world while simultaneously making it easier to obtain information available from other sources.

With a view to increase information literacy and to develop the habit of lifelong learning in our society, our collection is available not only to the EMU community, but also to the larger public.

Our library also embraces the principle of ‘aiming for the peak of quality’ and our overall objective is to become one of the best sources of information in the country and the region.
