About The Library

Overview of the Library

The AUM Library is housed in a two-phase building complex which includes a ten-story tower. The library collections contain over 500,000 books, 149 current periodical subscriptions, and nearly 150 electronic resource databases. The Library also has extensive collections of documents and periodicals on microfilm, a growing collection of manuscripts and archival materials, and a collection of audiovisual materials. The Library is a federal documents depository with over one million publications dating from the mid-nineteenth century to the present. The Library supplements these resources by providing interlibrary loan services for faculty and students. AUM Library is a member of OCLC, an international on-line bibliographic database with more than 1 billion records.

Library Reference Services

The Library reference service offers bibliographic instruction to assist students in beginning a research project. The library faculty and staff also provide individual assistance to students in locating information, searching within our databases, and using microform readers.
