Welcome note from the University Librarian

LAU’s campus-wide network of libraries takes pride in the dissemination of knowledge through our fine collections, remarkable services, innovative technologies and outstanding service-oriented and highly committed staff. Our services are not limited to available holdings, but extend to the inter-library loans and document delivery service and research assistance. We also offer an attractive and comfortable environment conducive to teaching, learning and research.

Our print collection of about half a million volumes and hundreds of print periodicals is strongly supplemented by subscriptions to various electronic resources — be it online databases, e-books or e-journals — providing access to millions of retrospective and current records.


The University libraries are committed to supporting and enhancing teaching, learning and research at the Lebanese American University through providing high quality services and resources, anticipating and responding to emerging technologies and enriching the intellectual and cultural life of the LAU community.
