The American University of Sharjah (AUS) has one of the best libraries in the region. It provides collections, services and programs to support the curricular and research needs of the university community.
The majority of the AUS library's growing physical collection of 140,000 items is in English; the library provides access to over 200,000 electronic books and there are also many materials available in Arabic. The library’s website can be used to search for library materials from any location on or off campus. At library.aus.edu students and faculty can access e-books, online databases, full-text journals and other digital resources.
