The University Library

The Library is one of the pillars of the University. It was established within Omdurman Ahlia College in 1985. By that time it acquired 5000 copies donated by the Canadian Government, The British Council, the Sudanese American Association, UNESCO, some Universities and some individuals particularly Princess Soad Al Sabah. In 1995 the library moved to its previous premises. In 2005 it occupied its present site and is now known as Professor Omer Mohammed Osman's (OMO) Library.

The Library is a four-storey building in which functional as well as aesthetic aspects were highly taken care of.

  • Languages: Arabic, English and French.
  • History and Geography.
  • Art and Design.
  • Library and Information Sciences.
  • Communication Sciences & Computer Sciences.
