Library

VinUni Library seeks to advance the intellectual life of the University community through resources and services that support faculty research as well as students’ successful learning outcomes and personal development.

The library offers 4 main types of spaces to support learning, teaching, research, innovation, and entrepreneurial activities.

Collaboration spaces

Library patrons can work with one another in various group configurations in our fully-equipped discussion rooms, open discussion booths, and comfortable seating lounge on both floors. Patrons have access to maker innovation spaces, studios, teleconference rooms, and a PC lab with high-end computers and adaptive software. The 24/7 learning common on the first floor is open to patrons at all hours of the day and night for those late night projects and essential discussions! Advanced reservations may be required for some of the specialized spaces.

Consultation spaces

Here library patrons can learn about new technology and seek assistance from librarians or professional experts. The library offers  two instructional classes on the first floor, two reference desks,  one consultation room cum English language lab, and book consulting spaces near bookshelves.

Sanctuary spaces

While the library can be a hub of collaborative learning activities, it is also a place where patrons can find safety in silence. There are plenty of quiet spaces for thinking, reflection, and creative work. Located close to the book stacks, these quiet spaces are ideal for those seeking to study on their own in silence.

Community engagement spaces

VinUni students can attend regular activities such as talks, presentations, book discussions, exhibitions, and poetry readings in the open amphitheater and training rooms which boast movable partitions that accommodate large groups and give participants a sense of belonging to a larger community.

 

The VinUniversity Library is building a collection of high quality, relevant, and intellectually diverse materials that will allow our patrons to have access to the latest knowledge that is being developed and shared around the world in a variety of disciplines. VinUniversity patrons, which include faculty, students, and staff, will have access to books, journals, online databases, and other scholarly publications both in the physical spaces in the library as well as online via the “Library portal” (log in is required).

To enable our patrons to access library materials from wherever they might be and to get rapid access to scholarly publications, the VinUni library is building rich digital collections for teaching and research, as well as, obtaining licensing access to a significant number of electronic books, journal articles, and other scholarly publications in all fields of study.

In addition to the collections, the Library will provide research and reference services to patrons, to help them in their scholarly explorations.
