AUS Library


Renowned as one of the premier libraries in the region, the AUS Library provides collections, services and programs to support the curricular and research needs of the university community.

The majority of our library's rapidly growing physical collection of 140,000 items is in English; the library provides access to over 200,000 electronic books and there are also many materials available in Arabic. The online catalog can be used to search for library materials from any location on or off campus. Using the library website, students and faculty can access e-books, online databases, full-text journals and other digital resources.

Our facilities include the Information Commons with 135 desktop computers, group study rooms, quiet study areas and media viewing rooms. The library offers hands-on information literacy classes to teach students research skills. It also works in conjunction with all parts of the university to provide academic resources for all classes taught at AUS.
