Staff are currently planning services for our opening in a spectacular library building designed by renowned architect Rem Koolhaas.
The library will be offering state of the art facilities, technologies and services that any Qatar resident may use. Included in our facilities will be public computer workstations, digital media production facilities, a variety of collaborative and individual learning spaces, a Children's Library, performance spaces, a café and more.
Qatar National Library (QNL) and the Council on Library and Information Resources (CLIR) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) that aims to develop, enhance and make available digitized cultural heritage content through the Digital Library of the Middle East (DLME).
Discoveries and data produced by Qatar’s research community will be managed in a more streamlined and accessible way through a new collaboration between Qatar National Library (QNL) and Qatar Foundation Research and Development (QF R&D).
