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.

The 10-digit number at the back of the AUBG ID card is both the user name and password for it. Each book may be renewed only once online. For every subsequent renewal, patrons should bring the book to the Circulation Desk.  

Hold requests

If a book is not available, it can be requested either online throught "My account" link or at the Circulation Desk. Once the book is returned, patrons will be notified by 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 put by Faculty for a specific course. They can be a textbook 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 Catalog within the university network, using the Reserve search options by instructor’s name, course ID or material title.

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