The DeBakey library is a center for literacy and research, a place that fosters and celebrates the love of reading, and acts as a learning and social hub for the whole school community. Through the people, places, collections and services it provides, the library supports and extends teaching and learning.
The Library has migrated as many of its services online as possible while its site is closed due to the COVID-19 outbreak. We are all set up for home working and can deal with any library queries during the working day. When needed, we are using MS Teams & Zoom to provide individual and small group teaching students. While access to our physical library is closed, our extensive collections through QNL platform and other open access resources of eBooks, e-journals and databases remain readily available 24/7.

Database access

As resident of Qatar you automatically have access to all electronic material on Qatar National Library(QNL) through our library webpage links provided. Several other publishers are providing access to additional e-resources, including e-books, during the period of the COVID-19 outbreak on a rolling trial basis. Currently, many of the suppliers and publishers are lifting some of the licensing restrictions on purchased e-resources which is helping facilitate even greater access for our students to the online learning material.

Service availability

We will guide you through how to access library services through webpages while our sites are closed. We’re working hard to provide you with the best Digital Library experience in these unusual circumstances. We will update this webpage with new information as we continue to move our services online where possible.
