On World Book Day, which is celebrated annually on the first week of March, the Marketing, Communications & Alumni Office would like to showcase the University of Malta Library, the only academic library in Malta and the backbone of the diverse educational and research activities undertaken at UM.
Our Library is also a crucial element in the successful intellectual and economic growth of the Maltese society at large.
Through a wide array of supportive services offered at both the main library and its six branches, the institution provides access to state-of-the-art facilitates and top-quality scholarly resources, including print and electronic collections, and develops the users' ability to effectively identify, locate, evaluate, use and synthesise information.
Our library floor area is over 5,000 square metres and houses one million volumes and close to 60,000 e-journal subscriptions, most of which are available remotely 24/7.
