Qatar University (QU) is taking part in the 30th edition of Doha International Book Fair highlighting its contributions to Qatar’s excellence in the academic sector.
The exhibition started Thursday at Doha Exhibition and Convention Centre (DECC).

QU’s participation this year sheds light on the institution's leading role in the community and its keenness to have an active presence at festivals, conferences and community events, particularly of cultural and intellectual nature.
The QU pavilion, according to a statement, witnessed a large turnout from different segments of society. It has a range of activities for the public. Qatar University Library, also a part of the pavilion, raises awareness about its services to both internal audiences from the QU community as well as external audiences such as readers and researchers. Most notably, the library highlights its large and diverse network of online databases in the fair.
