Irwin Metzger Memorial Library at the RIT Kosovo™ (A.U.K) was established in February 2007. Initially, it was a small library, but designed with a unique space that provided students with quiet individual study pods, a reading room, and group working space. Later, in the spring of 2009 the RIT Kosovo™ (A.U.K) library was expanded into two other floors with an aim to grow into the academic and research library which can accompany vision and mission of the RIT Kosovo™ (A.U.K) by providing outstanding learning and researching possibilities for both students and faculty.
Our mission involves working closely with the student representatives, faculty and the senior academic officer, Library and Instructional Technology Services at RIT Kosovo™ (A.U.K) to provide resources (print, electronic, software, hardware) as well as research and technology instruction to support effective faculty teaching and student learning within the institution.
In library’s plan to support the mission, one of the main concerns is the academic resources collection development.
Furthermore, following the 21st century trends in the effective learning, we hope to be able to design space and invest more in learning technologies in order to provide technology-rich learning spaces. Our priority is in enabling, rather than controlling access to learning. We have wireless local area network; our students get laptops when entering the RIT Kosovo™ (A.U.K); they have 24/7 access to the library online catalogue (http://library.auk.org/) and we are making certain steps as an institution in using virtual learning environments more.
