AUC Library boasts the largest English language academic collection in Egypt. The collection consists of both physical and digital scholarly works, with an increasing emphasis for the electronic format. The Library actively purchases monographs and various forms of media; and subscribes to eBooks, periodicals and databases. Content is acquired for all areas of teaching and research, though with a particular focus on the political, economic, historical, scientific and engineering issues pertinent to Egypt and the Middle East region. The collection is primarily in English and Arabic, while other European languages are acquired selectively.
