Our Learning Resource Center
The Learning Resource Center (LRC) at Canadian University Dubai provides access to a wealth of electronic resources and loans of materials to all Canadian University Dubai students, faculty, and staff.
We house a print collection of over 14,000 items consisting of books, journals, and multimedia. Our wide range of electronic resources includes 40,000+ e‐journals, 200,000+ e‐books, and over 3,200,000 intelligence reports and analyses. You can also access country reports, thesis and dissertations, conference proceedings, videos, and many more electronic resources. The electronic resources are accessible on and off-campus 24/7.
We encourage students to use the physical and digital resources available at LRC for independent learning, research needs, and personal improvement. We use the Library of Congress Classification System - currently one of the most widely used library classification systems in the world. Located on the ground floor of Building A and equipped with computers and Wi‐Fi, the LRC organizes regular information literacy events for all university students and faculty.
Our agreement with the British Library enables us to provide an interlibrary loan, in case the information required by the students and faculty is not available within the LRC resources.
