|Abstract:||This paper discussed the meaning of Islamic symbols at the library of Islamic universities in Indonesia. The purposes of this study were to identify the Islamic symbols in the libraries, to find the meaning of the Islamic symbols, and to reveal the representation of Islamic values through those symbols. This research was a descriptive research with a qualitative approach. The data were collected by observation and interview. The data were analyzed by conducting semiotic study of Ferdinand De Saussure and Stuart Hall’s representation theory on the meaning of Islamic symbols in the libraries. The results showed that the Islamic symbols in the Islamic university library are physical symbols and value symbols. These Islamic symbols had meaning as an implementation of Islamic values contained in the Qur’an and Hadith. It can be concluded that the Islamic symbols have been used in the library of Islamic universities in Indonesia. The symbols were interpreted as the implementation of Islamic values required in Islamic universities. The impacts of this research are the identification of Islamic symbols that have been used in the library of Islamic universities in Indonesia and the interpretation of the Islamic values contained in the symbols used.|
