The University Libraries consist of: Nami Jafet Memorial Library as the main library; and the following subject libraries: the Engineering and Architecture Library, the Saab Medical Library, and the Science and Agriculture Library with its annex library at the Agricultural Research and Education Center (AREC) in the Beqa’a Valley. The libraries’ extensive print and electronic collections, which are updated regularly, are heavily used by AUB students, faculty, doctors, and medical personnel—and by scholars and researchers from around the world. They contain monographs, books, periodicals, and electronic journals primarily in English and Arabic and invaluable archives and special collections as well.
Although many library resources are accessible remotely from both on and off campus, the libraries themselves are equipped with e-classrooms, computer labs, and wireless connectivity. Trained and experienced library staff conduct classes and workshops throughout the year to introduce and train users to take advantage of the libraries’ rich collections, information resources, and innovative technologies.
