Who can use the University Libraries?
The University Libraries primarily serve the University's current faculty, students, staff, and researchers with a valid ID card.
However, visitors are welcome to use the Campus Libraries and should contact the Access Services Department for information on how to issue a membership card.
How can I find out if AUB libraries have a particular book or journal I am interested in before issuing a membership card?
The University Libraries’ print and online collections are available through the Library Catalog. By using the Library Catalog users can get the bibliographic information and availability of the desired titles and collections.

Can I use the Libraries’ online resources?
External users cannot acquire a personal username and password to access the internet and databases. However, users with valid membership cards may search a variety of online databases and download articles with the assistance of staff at the Reference desk(s) in Jafet and branch libraries.
Can I print, and photocopy documents through the libraries?
There is ONE stand-alone printer that is connected locally to a computer for visitors who do not have an AUBnet account. You need a magnetic card to print. Automatic dispenser machines to buy and re-charge magnetic cards for printing (and photocopying) are available in the Reference area of Jafet Library. Printing of one A4 page costs 1 unit (LL.50).
The magnetic card is reusable after the encoded value is exhausted by adding value to it through the dispense machine. The machine accepts only L.L5, 000, and the libraries do not deal with cash change.
