Answer

Current AU students, faculty and full-time staff log on to the library computers using their username and password - the same credentials used for AU email.  They may use the library databases anywhere with Internet access. When off campus, you will be prompted to log in with your myau.american.edu portal credentials (the first part of your email address and the password you selected.)

Alumni, while on campus, may request a computer log on at the Borrowing Desk. For off-campus (Off-Site) Service, alums may remotely access these five databases: JSTOR, Academic Search Premier Alumni Edition (an electronic database specifically for alumni), Project Muse, GreenFile (indexing and abstracting resource covering aspects of human impact to the environment), and Current Digest of the Post-Soviet Press. Access to these databases is available through the Library Resources section of the Alumni Association Online Community. Click here to register/sign in to use these resources. 

Guests may present a government-issued ID to register with Borrowing Desk and receive a temporary user name and password.
