AUD’s library staff is committed to the student, hosting a collaborative learning space, providing research assistance, and consults with faculty to deliver course-specific, research skills instruction.


The Library has both primary and complementary Missions. The primary Mission of the American University in Dubai Library is to provide information resources and services to support the instructional programs and educational goals of the university; namely, to help students prepare for a career, develop life-long learning and critical thinking skills and to promote diversity in the student body and educational programs. The complementary Mission is to support the research and staff development needs of AUD faculty and staff.


The Library's operational goals include facilitating access to information through:
  • The development of the library print collection, electronic information resources and access to external information sources;
  • The library's organization and arrangement for access;
  • Appropriate reference services and user education programs;
  • The maintenance of facilities of an adequate size and quality to house collections, resources, and equipment and to provide adequate space for patrons and library personnel.
