Rare Books

Over 300 rare book titles of historical value, predominately on the Middle East, the Indian Peninsula and Islamic studies, are housed in Special Collections at Zayed Central Library. These rare books, dating from the seventeenth century, are often difficult to find in the market, and then only through antiquarian booksellers. As such, these items are kept in a secure area to which access is restricted.
