The Kazakh collection encompasses works from Kazakhstan, about Kazakhstan and in the Kazakh language from all over the world. Its size can be estimated only: It amounts to approximately 3,600 volumes and around 140 periodicals. A large part of these periodicals has been discontinued. Since the 2000s, some electronic journals have been available as well. The collection also comprises approximately 80 Kazakh books in Arabic script from China. A small proportion of microforms and maps complement the Kazakh collection, which grows by approximately 50 media items annually.
