The collection of the Ataköy Campus Library is composed of publications such as reference works and books related to economic and administrative sciences, science and technology, engineering and architecture, as well as works with social and general content.

Resources in our library, which works with the open shelf system, are placed according to the Dewey Decimal Classification System.


All materials in the library were transferred to the electronic environment by means of the SirsiDynix Symphony Library automation program and presented to the service of readers through internet. Users may benefit by making online catalog scanning through the computers in our library. Moreover, users are given the opportunity to connect to internet wirelessly through their notebooks.
