It was founded with the aim of becoming a hub of research for scholars, students and other interested parties within and outside of ARUCAD who are interested in the world of the Mediterranean so that they can have access to resources. It will provide invaluable articles to enable research in the fields of archaeology, anthropology, history, art, art history and design in many languages to people who wish to conduct such studies.
Prof. Dr. Marko Kiessel, the manager of Research Center for Art, Design, Culture and Heritage of the Mediterranean, has stated that the primary aim of the centre is to accumulate digital and physical prints of many scholarly articles so that students, researchers, and all other interested parties can conduct research and studies within the growing limits of the research library.
