LIWA Library Consortium Signed!

Since 2002, UAEU Libraries have collaborated with the Libraries of the Zayed University and the Higher Colleges of Technology. Initially cooperating via a shared library management system and shared union catalog, this cooperation was strengthened in 2006 by signing a Memorandum of Understanding.

In September 2020, all three parties renewed this consortium agreement to better reflect the ways in which the libraries and their parent institutions can work together:

The revised objectives include the following:

  • Resource sharing via interlibrary loans and document delivery of journal articles, book chapters and other scholarly content as permitted by copyright law.
  • Shared access to library resources such as shared subscription or licence agreement for scholarly e-resources from publishers and aggregators.
  • Knowledge sharing of library developments and technologies.
  • Staff development and training; and staff exchange to support the professional development of library staff in each institution.
  • Joint promotion and advocacy for funding and resourcing of university libraries in UAE.
  • Joint negotiation and collaboration with other consortium and network providers.
  • Shared off-site storage or physical repository for Emirati and Arab language collections.
  • Shared development of information literacy and research support services.

We look forward to working more closely with our partners in these sister institutions.
