The library building is constructed on a 62000 sq m plot. It has about 97000 so m gross area with a capacity of about 4 million items (books, periodicals,manuscripts, maps, etc) in normal shelving and 7 million items in case of using compact shelving system or robots.The structure is an organic whole which has created an intimate and inviting atmosphere. A single, solid, compact and at the same time horizontally-stretched structure, furnishes great flexibility and allows for smooth workflow.

The building at the same time is technically outstanding. Using up to minute technologies of librarianship and considering local and global standards a contemporary Iranian architecture has been created which coordinates the complex work and high standards of construction and detailing.
