In line with the preventive precautionary measures taken by the state at all levels (may Allah strengthen it) to reduce the risk of the spread of COVID-19, and upon the directives of His Excellency the UQU President and his keenness to limit the spread of the epidemic, the Deanship of Library Affairs is pleased to harness all the electronic capabilities it has to serve all the university employees without them having to come to the library. The deanship provides the following electronic services:


First: The "Dorar" Knowledge Platform

The platform contains the university's production of scientific theses, manuscripts, and some proceedings of conferences and seminars that were held at the university. Scientific journals of Umm Al-Qura University will also be added


Second: Electronic Information Sources Service

This service provides databases (of scientific articles and research publications) in addition to full-text e-books covering various scientific fields of the colleges and research institutes in Umm Al-Qura University. This service is accessed by logging into the university website with the university employees' account and then accessing the online services from the main page of Umm Al-Qura University.
