As part of Dubai Judicial Institute’s (DJI) efforts to support the Dubai Strategy for the People of Determination 2020, DJI announced the addition of new services to its e-library that benefit the visually impaired and the entire community, especially the legal community, including, among others, members of the judiciary, lawyers, students, and legal researchers. The new service will add some tools to help browse the e-library's catalogue, such as increasing the font size, audio reading of index contents, and changing colour differentiation, among others, to support the People of Determination, enhance their reading culture, and enable them to obtain knowledge in different fields.

HE Justice Dr Jamal Al Sumaiti, Director General of DJI, commented: “We consider People of Determination an integral part of society, and we are keen on aligning with the directives of our wise leadership who pay close attention to them. Everyone’s concerted efforts, including those of institutions, aim to improve the situation of People of Determination so they can contribute to the UAE’s overall development. The new services offered by the e-library are part of ongoing initiatives through which we seek to provide the necessary care and support, develop their capabilities, and help them engage in businesses that suit their abilities and ensure a decent life for them.”

Through its online catalogue, DJI’s e-library aims to provide as much information as possible about legal books, periodicals, and DJI’s publications to remotely benefit legal researchers. In the future, information resources will be linked to the e-library with available training videos to DJI's programmes on related topics. Dr Nora Obaid Al Rumaithi, Knowledge and publishing management Director at DJI, said: “DJI is proud to support national efforts to achieve the objectives of the ‘My Community...a City for Everyone’ initiative to transform Dubai into a city that is friendly for People of Determination by 2020. The new services offered by the e-library will be a source of encouragement for young citizens with visual impairment, inspiring them to engage in legal and judicial studies, increasing their knowledge, supporting their specialities, and developing their professional competencies. This contributes to empowering them and maximising their participation and integration in society.”

DJI’s e-library is one of the most important, specialised legal libraries for its diverse and comprehensive information wealth in various assets, branches, and available data of the legal and judicial sciences. It now has more than 10,000 publications in the fields of Islamic law, law, jurisprudence, and the judiciary.

The Library facilitates access to references, books, periodicals, and other materials relevant to the fields of education, training, and scientific research requirements as well as contribute to providing the latest Arabic and foreign references and books. It also ensures communication with relevant databases and information through the international information exchange network, providing ongoing briefing services that aim to inform beneficiaries of new additions to the library, including collections and programmes of interest to both the researcher and the student, via SMS in addition to providing researchers and specialists in the UAE and abroad the best technical practices to easily access DJI’s various information vessels.
