To facilitate research at AUB, the University Libraries are very happy to share with you the following list of 2016 major library acquisitions of electronic resources.

Our complete list of 500 or so major databases can be found at:

Thanks to the university administration’s continuous support of the University Libraries, AUB currently owns and provides access to an incredibly large and high quality collection of library e-resources that very few libraries worldwide and definitely none in the Arab world can match. This finding is based on extensive comparisons with libraries at top universities in the US, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates. Please encourage your students to make the most of these incredible library resources.

Best regards,

University Libraries
