The library of Amoud University is regarded as one of the best university libraries in the horn of Africa. Over the past decade, we have collected over 120,000 volumes to support teaching, learning and research. Although still print-based, the university is planning to switch to electronic books and journals to enable easier internet access to these resources. In addition to its large volume the library can provide seating over 200 readers a time.
