Irwin Metzger Memorial Library at the American University in 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 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 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 officers, Media Center and Instructional Technology Services at the American University in Kosovo 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.
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 knowledge. ”
