Women's Library

The Qatar University campus is divided into a Women's and Men's campus and so is the library. The current QU Women's library is where I work much of the time. It has a stunning exterior with many wind towers. The collection is recently re-classified from Dewy Decimal to LC and from Card Catalog to OPAC. The Arabic materials are slower to update and many are still in the process of finding new LC call numbers. The whole collection will move to a much larger new library facility later in the year.

Showing the girls the old card catalog!
