Electronic resources

All electronic resources including databases, journals, and online resources will remain accessible to the Kardan University Community. If you are unable to access an electronic database, please report the problem and we will work with you to resolve the issue.

Physical Books

The Library operation will be limited to two days per week (Saturday and Wednesday) from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm for all the students’ interested borrowing, returning and updating books from the Kardan University library. We urge users to find online formats and alternatives, as this will be the most quick and efficient way of accessing needed materials. If you need help or support in anyway, please submit requests to librarians.

Any book on loan to a faculty member as of March 2020 has been renewed until. June-20-2020. We will reassess these date as this situation progresses. No overdue fines or fees will be charged during this period. Existing overdue fees will remain unchanged.

To the best of our ability, the library will provide remote access to our digital library collection for class and research needs while the contingency plan is in effect. We will offer as much support as possible to make resources available to students and faculty remotely.
