Dear Zayed University community, and visitors of the ZU libraries:
As Zayed University resumes some of the campus activities under the guidance of the UAE government for Fall 2020, libraries on both campuses have developed the guidelines below to continue to provide services, as well as access to resources and space for our users.
This is a broad outline of our plan for the Fall 2020 library operations. As the situation continues to develop and we receive guidance from the government, and the university administration, we will modify and adjust the plan as needed.
While library facilities and services might look different in the fall of 2020, the entire Library and Learning Commons team is fully committed to supporting the teaching, learning, and research activities at the university and beyond. We look forward to working with you and continuing to serve your needs.
Director, Library and Learning Commons
