Welcome to PAF-KIET Library. This is a multi-disciplinary learning space serving the faculty, students, researchers and staff of the university. Our vision is “Promoting and facilitating the research, scholarship, collaboration and self-directed lifelong learning”.
In academic institutions, faculty and library play an equally important role in educating students. Libraries are instrumental in the development of both student and faculty.
Currently, the library houses a unique and diverse collection of more than 18,500 books. Separate libraries at the PAF Korangi Creek Campus (Main Campus), Shahrah-e-Faisal Campus (City Campus) and North Nazimabad Campus support this crucial role of faculty and student development. Within a short period of time, the Institute has built an impressive collection of books in Engineering, Business Management, Computer Sciences, Media & Arts, English, Mathematics, English and Urdu literature and other general books.
PAF-KIET has well-established and organized air conditioned libraries having a covered area of 3981 sq.ft.
A separate, well furnished, decorated and spacious air-conditioned ‘Reading Room’ is also a part Main Campus library. It has a capacity of more than hundred students having separate carrels, which provide a congenial environment for self-study. PC terminals are available for the students where they have online access to thousands of journals in Digital Library. Over 50 journals and magazines of international repute are available for research and reference along with several English and Urdu newspapers. The Institute subscribes to the digital libraries of IEEE, ACM & link to HEC subscribed libraries containing thousands of journals and magazines.
The library users benefit from the availability of online access to journals in various Digital Libraries through PC terminals, internet access for research, vast collection of CDs and DVD’s on various subjects and large air-conditioned reading rooms having separate carrels for self-study.
