The history of the library

The formation and development of the Information resource center is closely linked to the history of the University.

The book collection in the reading rooms is provided in accordance with international standards in open access, and the reading rooms are equipped with separate booths for individual and group classes. Users are provided with free access to the Internet, WI-FI, as well as access to electronic information resources of Ulakbim (Turkey) and electronic resources of its own generation.

Since 2010, the library has been a participant in projects to integrate electronic educational resources into a single information system – the Republican interuniversity electronic library (RMB), as well as the Kazakh national electronic library (KazNEB). The library is fully automated. To ensure wide access to information resources, a special library program IRBIS-64 is used.in 2016, a system of RFID technologies was introduced to ensure the safety of the Fund.
