Procedures and guidelines for borrowing reference materials

Our service in this section is to provide reference materials and to help users to  find the required information in the shortest time and  with the least effort. We work to develop appropriate solutions to any problems faced by users and provide them with information from available sources. Arabic references are classified by the Arabic letter (م ), all foreign reference materials  are classified by the English letter (R) and the code that appears above the request number.
