Central Library

Ajou University Central Library was founded on March 15th, 1973 to fulfill our education objectives clearly stated in our school regulations. Our goal is to contribute to the students' and faculty's studies and research by collecting, arranging and providing academic information.

At the beginning the total floor space of the library was only 876㎡ and there was a total of 120 seats in the reading room. We initiated our service on April 2nd, 1973 with 1272 books and 1 librarian.

Ajou University Central Library was reformed as the school grew to university status. With the donation of 5 billion won from Kim Woo Joong, the former-Chairman of Daewoo group. It has the Library Service Desk, New Arrivals, Multimedia Center, Information Support Room on the 1st floor, Periodicals and Reference Desk on the 2nd floor, Books and Course Reserves on the 3rd and 4th floor with a floor space of 13,310㎡. There are several Group study rooms, meeting and Presentation spaces, and study carrels on each floor. Now we have approximately 1,080,000 books and 2,415 seats in the reading rooms.
