About the Library
The Research Center for Anatolian Civilizations (ANAMED) Library which is a branch of Koç University’s Suna Kıraç Library is in the Merkez Han on İstiklal Caddesi.
The ANAMED Library collection relates to history, art, archaeology, architecture and civilizations in Turkey, in support of the research interests of its fellows, who are investigating and preserving Turkey’s cultural heritage at the ANAMED by their research projects that deal with past two and a half millennia.
The ANAMED Library primarily serves the fellows of Research Center for Anatolian Civilizations (ANAMED) as well as Koç University students, faculty, administrative staff, retired faculty&staff, and family members of faculty and staff. We welcome applications from outside scholars and advanced graduate students who are investigating and preserving Turkey’s cultural heritage and need access to the Library for their own research. Access to the ANAMED Library is restricted by Koç University ANAMED regulations and is granted only through the ANAMED and NIT Libraries Membership System.
Please note that Koç University Research Center for Anatolian Civilizations (ANAMED) Library will be closed from 5 p.m. on August 3, 2017 onwards for a temporary but indefinite period. During this time, the ANAMED Library will undergo several important changes and will be renewed in order to provide much richer sources to its users. While the ANAMED Library is closed, you can use the Netherlands Institute in Turkey Library, which is also in Merkez Han and managed by our library team, on weekdays between 9.00 a.m. and 6 p.m.
Apologies for the temporary inconvenience caused by our closure and the noise that will come from the construction, and thank you for your understanding.
