Studying in the Library


The Library provides a great place to study. It is split over two floors and plenty of assistance is available.

The lower floor has large tables that can be used for collaborative working while the upper floor provides a reading room for individual silent study.


IT Facilities


A range of IT facilities are available to use in the Library, including:

  • iMacs for Office/Photoshop/Internet access

  • A3 and A4 black and white printers for all iMacs/PCs
  • A3 and A4 colour printer for iMacs/PCs
  • A4 Scanning facilities on selected iMacs/PCs

Self Service


We have two self service terminals located next to the Library counter. They can be used to issue, renew and return books, DVDs and CDs and pay fines. If required, receipts can be printed or sent to your AUB email address indicating issue and return dates.

Returned books that are reserved for another reader will be indicated and should be placed in the returns slot.

In most cases you will be directed to use these terminals unless you have an enquiry for a member of staff, or the terminals are unable to provide you with the service you require.

If you have a question, please contact the Library.
