Maldives National University Library won the first place in the Book Display Competition 2016, organized by the Maldives National Library. This competition was organized to mark this year’s World Book Day.

MNUL Best Attendance Award 2015

Nasheedha Abdul Rasheed

Our heartfelt congratulations on receiving the best attendance award.


12Mr. Hussain Haleem

Chief librarian

It is a great pleasure for us to welcome you to our family.

It’s an exciting time for MNU Library as we continue to grow; we strive to remain as adaptable, motivated and responsive to our MNU communal. We’re glad to have you on board, as part of our team, and that you are our most important and greatest asset.

We look forward to working with you, leading the life of library community!

This year’s MNU library day was celebrated on 13 of August across the MNU community both in Male’ and in the Atoll campuses.

The day is eminent to recognize the importance of library and information services as providers of information to the user community; the faculty and the students. Consequently, library plays an integral part in their academic excellence.

Also, we believe there is a lot more that we need to achieve in terms of collection development, improved and efficient user services and simultaneously improve the user education services on how to access and use the library’s physical and online resources.

It is the one very special day we intensely look forward to, and the preparation for the day begins at the beginning of the year; ideas on decorations, displays and fun and exciting games. Our main aim is to give our users a general learning experience about MNU libraries, library team, its collections and services in a friendly, non-formal environment for a day.

Activities of the Library day included: Gate ticket, free photocopying, book donations, distribution of gift hampers, and provocative games, riddles and challenges.

It was the excellent involvement of the library team, MNU management and users that made this year’s event distinctive and colourful.
