Library

Welcome To The UCB Library Website

UCB Library supports the university's instructional and research programs through a collection of books, journals, audiovisual materials, electronic resources on CD-ROMs, DVDs and online databases. The emphasis of the collection is on subject areas related to the programs offered at UCB (Business Administration, Information Technology, Computing, Graphic Design and Media)

Our aim is to develop and deliver innovative, client-focused library services that support and enhance UCB's teaching programs.

The UCB Library is a modern, fast-growing library that is an integral part the educational process of the University College Bahrain. Its priority is to easily and comfortably offer access to its collections (printed & electronic) mainly in the areas of Business and Computer Science to the University's community.

Building a rich collection of volumes and multimedia items is a priority so new books are ordered regularly, based on the recommendations of the teaching and library staff. Moreover the library is subscribed to online databases and e-sources.

Classification System
The books stock is arranged in a classified sequence based on the Dewey Decimal Classification system. Most of the volumes in the library are on open shelves available for borrowing. All you need to borrow a book is to get the call number (the classification number and item number).
 
Dewey Decimal System of Classification
The Dewey Decimal System, devised by Melvil Dewey in 1876, is a method of classifying and cataloging library materials by subject. Below are the ten major divisions:

000-099 Generalities
100-199 Philosophy and Psychology
200-299 Religion
300-399 Social Sciences
400-499 Language
500-599 Natural Sciences and Mathematics
600-699 Technology (Applied Sciences)
700-799 The Arts
800-899 Literature and Rhetoric
900-999 Geography and History

“What I have learned in my graduation years is being practiced now in day to day basis and of course the credit for all this goes to our highly qualified professors.”
