Checking out

All AUBG students have Library accounts automatically created upon arrival at the university. Faculty and staff are registered at the Circulation Desk with their AUBG ID card. Non-AUBG visitors use the Library after filling out a form without borrowing privileges. Patrons check out materials from the Library by presenting AUBG ID card at the Circulation Desk.

Missing parts

If any part is missing upon return, it is imperative that you replace it at your earliest convenience (e.g. booklets, CDs, etc.). If the replacement is impossible, you will be charged for the entire cost of the material.  Faculty and staff do not pay for overdue fines, but professional courtesy requires regular returning of the Library materials.

Book renewal

Patrons can renew books either online or at the Circulation Desk before the due date. Requested books cannot be renewed and if they become overdue, there is a $1 fee, accumulated to the patron’s account.  

Online renewal

Patrons can access their Library accounts using the following "My account" link on the the upper left corner of the Catalog page, using the 10-digit number at the back of the AUBG ID card both as a user name and a password. Each book may be renewed online only once. Еvery subsequent renewal is performed by a librarian.  

Hold requests

If a book is not available, it can be requested either online through "My account" or at the Circulation Desk. Once the book is returned, patrons will be notified by an e-mail. It will be kept at the Circulation Desk for a period of 7 days.

Course reserves

The Course Reserve is a collection of materials placed for a specific course by a Faculty member. The reserve can include textbooks for a course, photocopies, additional readings, audio-visual materials, etc. The print Course Reserve is situated at the Circulation Desk. The Electronic Course Reserve can be accessed through the Library Catalog within the university network, using the Reserve search options by an instructor’s name, course ID or a title for the material.

Students may check out up to three Reserve materials for a loan period of 2 hours and use them only in the Library. The fine for overdue Reserve materials is $1 per loan period.
