Khazar University Library and Information Center collections comprise a complex and growing system that supports faculty and student research and curricular needs. Library collections provide physical and digital access to material and may be a physical location or a virtual space, or both. The information provided here is to keep the campus community informed and involved in the growth and support of our libraries.
LIC collections are developed and managed by subject librarians. Purchase recommendations from patrons are always welcome.
LIC participates as a member of the Azerbaijani Library and Information Consortia and Azerbaijan Library Development Association. As a benefit of membership in these groups, the LIC licenses some of our databases collectively, negotiates discounts on shared electronic resources, coordinates resource sharing, and maximize the efficacy of our expenditures and our expertise.
Electronic resources are a growing part of LIC collections. There are currently over 20,000 journals available electronically, as well as numerous e-books.
Many of these resources are accessed through databases available to LIC users, through the Library Catalog and DSpace.
As journal subscriptions continue to evolve from print to electronic access, we consider a number of factors when determining what to offer and how best to do so: Content, Pricing, Budget, Usage, Access, Archiving, Duplication, Licensing Terms.
