Hafez Hospital Library



Alongside the establishment of Hafez Hospital in 1963, a specific area was allocated for the Hospital’s  specialized library. SUMS School of Nursing was initially housed in the hospital’s building No. 3, where the library was set up to cater to the school's educational needs. Later, with the opening of SUMS Psychology Institute at the hospital, the library expanded to include resources on psychology and allied fields.


Currently, the library maintains collections on rheumatology, gynecology, and obstetrics in addition to the aforementioned subject areas. Spanning an area of 70 square meters, Hafez Hospital Library features distinct collections, a circulation desk, computer facilities, and a comfortable reading space.
