The central library was destroyed during the invasion of Iraq in March 2003 and many members of staff took books home to protect them. Reconstruction has been slow but undergraduates continue to use the library due to its easy access. It houses Iraq's oldest collections of maps, gazeteers and atlases and holds collections of Arabic and foreign literature.
