Printing and photocopying services are available in the Library. Students receive an initial amount of free printing credit at the beginning of each semester but after that you will need to pay for both services. The amount of free printing credit depends on what course you are studying.
If you have credit, just login to any computer or photocopier in the Library and print your work. If you do not have credit, you will need to purchase this through the self-service payment machine available in the library or at the Finance Department.
Both the printers and photocopiers are located in a room near the entrance to the Library.

You can access electronic books while inside or outside the university; just make sure you login with the same username and password as your Blackboard and click on “Read Online” or “FullText PDF”.
The majority of AUD Library Databases are also available while you are off campus. You can access them by entering your username and password (identical to the ones you enter to your Blackboard).
A link from a database does not work, because a database does NOT function like a website on the web. In other words, you will require being a subscriber to be able to access the page. Therefore, the URLs of the articles you retrieve from databases are not permanent. We recommend that you email, save (download), or print the article as you find it.
AUD Library has Librarians whose responsibility are to guide the students, faculty and staff in finding the appropriate keywords, locating resources, accessing the resources and building their bibliography (works cited) list. You are always welcome to ask for help either at the Reference Desk, by emailing us on ReferenceLibrarian@aud.edu
