Children’s Collection

The Children's Collection was started in 1987 and represents an extensive collection of books written for children and young ages which comprised of more than 15,000 items. Most of the collection reflecting the ethnic and multicultural diversity of UUM community and items can be found using LibSearch. It also supports UUM studies in education and child development, art and more. Therefore even though it serves as a resource for the children of UUM staffs and students, it also opened to all users as a reference materials.

It is located at the PSB Main Building on the ground floor near the Auditorium 1 and Smart Reading Room and opened only on Monday during normal Semester session and Sunday-Thursday during Semester Break.

The children’s collection is organized by subjects; rather than pinpointing a book’s subject as specifically as possible, the categories are typically broader and have been devised based on the kinds of categorizing that children of different ages do and uses the language that they use.

Collection Building

In order to develop a necessary standards of library materials for the purpose of study, learning and research in UUM, we strive to have a quality references in our collections. To do that the Library purchased the materials from recognized supplier or publishers from all around the globe. These high qualities of books, journal, audio visual etc were acquired with the involvement of faculty members as well the students in selecting the items accordingly. Onward the items will be processes by our Librarians in order to enable users an easy access to their required materials.
