Qatar National Library (QNL) continues to raise its local profile and enhance the lives of students, researchers and residents in Qatar by encouraging them to register to freely access its vast online resources.
In support of Qatar Foundation’s efforts to ensure the country’s journey towards a knowledge-based economy, the initiative of visiting prominent organizations has given Qatar’s community the perfect opportunity in which to learn about QNL’s online resources, register free of charge, and begin discovering a wealth of digital content.
The QNL Access Team has conducted more than 100 visits; which included the Ministry of Interior, British Council, Aspetar Hospital, Gulf Organisation for Industrial Consulting, Qatar Cool, Awsaj Academy, the Birla Public School and the German Center.
The visits have also introduced a clear picture of the modern library that QNL presents through its three functions: National Library, University and Research Library, and a Metropolitan Public Library of the digital age.
The National Library function collects and provides access to global knowledge relevant to Qatar and the region. It also collects, preserves and provides access to heritage content and materials about Qatar and the region. The University and Research Library function supports education and research at all levels by providing printed and digital library materials for students and researchers. The Metropolitan Public Library delivers library services and information for everyone so that they can continue to enjoy reading, meet others, and eventually become rich in knowledge and information.
Although the Library is yet to open the doors to its new building, QNL is currently offering free online access to a vast collection of online resources, including the latest bestsellers, classical works, concerts, top academic journals and documentaries.
Anyone who lives in Qatar and has a valid Qatari ID/Residence Permit is eligible for free library registration.
