Checking Out Books

Online learners can request up to five books to be sent via mail. There is no charge for the books to be mailed to your location, but you are responsible for mailing the books back with tracking confirmation. These books may be from AU's collection or a WRLC library. You may also request a digital scan of up to 10% of a book. For inquiries or to request books, contact the library at For more information, visit the Online Learners and Scholars Abroad page.

If you are a local online student (of if you will be in town visiting), you can also visit Bender Library to check out materials. All AU online students can request an AU ID card from the AU One Card office. You can request that the AU ID card be mailed to you.

If you are looking for children's and young adult literature, your local public library is a great place to check out as well. If you are looking for teaching materials, AU Library has an extensive collection of ebooks that you can access directly from your computer.
