The Center For Eurasian Studies Library (AVİM Library) became operational in 2009, the year AVİM was founded. The library houses a multilingual collection containing more than 2000 materials. The AVİM Library is being expanded with new acquisitions each year and all publications are being catalogued in an online data base. As the cataloging process is continuing, not all pieces in AVİM's collection have been transferred yet to the new public catalogue.



The AVİM Library is open to experts and researchers working in the fields of International Relations, Political Science, Law, Sociology, and Psychology. Arrangements must be made in advance for library use.
