The POLIS University Library started was established since the opening of the University, in 2006. Our continuous efforts aim to creating a new standard for libraries and space for study and scientific research. We are making a huge investment in digital content and services, trying to distribute our Library more and more to our students and staff, 24 hours a day, wherever they are. The year 2011 marked the opening of the new hall, where we offered new services and more high-level study places. We have an excellent team, friendly and professional staff, who try to provide services and are committed to help you find and use the information you need.
The Library advances the University's mission to educate committed and accomplished citizens through our dynamic services and valuable collections. Our staff is focused on the creation and cultivation of physical and virtual environments, for open research and academic excellence. Its mission is to serve as an information center for its users (students, lecturers and research scientists of these fields), where they are offered the opportunity for new knowledge and getting them in the most effective way. This has been achieved through the introduction of new technology, computerized services, turning this library with traditional services and physiognomy into a modern and contemporary library.
