The library aims to acquire and preserve publications and documentation concerning Nubian cultural heritage and the museum collections and to make the material available to researchers and interested public.
The library consists in a lobby, a general reading area and an electronic reading area.
It possesses more than 2000 volumes (206 of them in Arabic) concerning a wide variety of subjects including: Art, History, Archaeology, Public relations, Conservation, Education, Museology, Exhibition design, Museum Management, and reference books (dictionaries, atlases, …). Most of these publications concern Nubia, but also Egypt, and to a lesser extent, the rest of the world.
Various reports, dissertations, periodicals and CD-ROMs, complete this ever-growing collection.
