Library Mission

Library Mission

The entire library staff would like to welcome you to the physical and virtual library and its variety of services.

The University Library's mission is to provide AUP students, faculty, and staff with the information resources they require for the pursuit of their educational interests. Click here for the Mission Statement. See the Collection Development Policy below for details. 

The over 41,000 volumes of books and more than 40,000 print and online journals available through the library represent the main core of materials available in print or online. The University Library acts as a gateway to information be it on our own shelves, through the Web, or in other Paris libraries. We are committed to helping you take advantage of these resources. An effective use of information resources is essential to your success at the American University of Paris and throughout your life. Our team of professional librarians collaborates with faculty for the best possible delivery of information literacy, reference and research help services.

Do not hesitate to come to us with your questions; that is what we are here for and we look forward to meeting you.
