Embassy of India in Kuwait Makes Book Donations to AUK Library

H.E. the Ambassador of India to Kuwait Mr. Sunil Jain and the Deputy Chief of Mission Mr. Shubashis Goldar along with members of the Indian Embassy visited the AUK Library for a book donation ceremony on Tuesday, April 14 intended to mark a generous donation of books by the Embassy of India in Kuwait to the AUK Library. Guests were welcomed by Dr. Nizar Hamzeh, AUK President Dr. Rawda Awwad, Dean of College of Arts and Sciences, and Ms. Asma Al-Kanan, Library Director.

The donated collection, which is placed on display, consists of over 53 titles on the history, art and culture of India. Many of the titles are coffee table hardcover books that are filled with special illustrations and photographs.

The event was attended by a number of faculty and staff of the AUK community to reinforce the importance of cultural exchange. At the end of the ceremony, AUK President Dr. Nizar Hamzeh presented H.E. Mr. Sunil Jain with a small gift and a certificate of appreciation in recognition of this contribution.

The AUK Library holds more than 42,000 print books in different disciplines, in addition to thousands of E-books and other electronic resources. Over the past 12 years of its existence, the Library has undergone physical and technological upgrades to cater for the growing academic and technological needs of the AUK community. Last year, the AUK Library became the first in Kuwait to introduce the 3M SelfCheck kiosk, a device that allows Library visitors to self-checkout books without stopping by the helpdesk.
