March 4, 11, 18 and 25 starting at 9:30 am and ending at 4:00 pm

Note: You are requested to attend an orientation session on the same day of registration, therefore, you will need to make sure to leave your day free of any other activities.

The AUC Library exists to support the teaching and research programs of the University. Our staff members, space and resources are limited and our priority is to serve the AUC community. Beyond this, our goal is to serve as a resource for specialized interests only when our collections meet a specific research need.
