In support of the BA objectives and role as a leading institution in the digital age, and in order to provide the best services to the Library’s visitors, the Visits Department (External Relations and Media Sector), in cooperation with the International School of Information Science (Information Communication Technology Sector), is honored to announce the launch of the Bibliotheca Alexandrina 3D Virtual Tour Application Project.

This application aims to facilitate the selection of the places to visit in the library and shows the necessary directions to access them. This is done by tracing the itineraries inside a three-dimensional model of the entire library, including the Plaza, the Main Reading Hall, the museums, the art exhibitions, the Planetarium and many other places. In addition, there is a simplified, readable and audible explanation of these places in Arabic, English and French.

The computer responsible for displaying the 3D Virtual Tour has been placed in the BA Main Entrance to be accessible to all Library visitors.
