Library

Our library is the largest German library of professional literature among universities in Central Asia. Here you can find modern textbooks and study materials in four languages: German, Russian, Kazakh and English.

We update the library fund every year and expand our electronic resources, including subscription to periodicals. Our library is automated making it easier to find necessary literature.

The library is sponsored by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), the Robert Bosch Foundation, the Friedrich Ebert Foundation, the Kazakhstan Institute for strategic studies under the President of Kazakhstan, Goethe-Institut and the German scientific society. In addition, our students can use electronic resources of Technical University of Applied sciences Wildau, RIEL, SpringerLink, ThomsonReuter, Science Direct, and Lanbooks.
