Explore Workshops and Events



Nazarbayev University Library actively welcomes donations of books and funds for specific aspects of our work! The contribution of donors is invaluable in allowing the Library to acquire otherwise unaffordable resources for the benefit of our students, staff and faculty and ultimately for the country as a whole.


Under the framework of our Charter, any needed donated resource will be added to our main collection and will be made available to our patrons in perpetuity. Generations of students will remember the kindness of your bequest on reading the book in question, thanks a special bookplate pasted into every title and a special wall board listing significant donors to our collection. Also, our website will list all donors and we will publicise large donations within the University, on the Library and University websites, and where appropriate will pass details on to local news media.


Furthermore, we value your partnership and input. Once a year, you will be invited to a donor’s lunch, a round table event where your contribution will be recognised or remembered and where your input as to the potential future development of the Library will be sought. Also, we will send you regular email updates detailing the events and activities of the Library as we seek to provide an unparalleled, world-class learning resource in the heart of Central Asia.
