As an integral and active leader of the educational and academic process, the AUC libraries create an environment that provides access, tools, content and services to advance learning, teaching and research, scholarship and personal enlightenment locally and globally.
In fulfilling the mission of the AUC libraries, the Rare Books and Special Collections Library (RBSCL) supports research and teaching by collecting, preserving, and disseminating primary sources about the culture, intellectual life, and society of Egypt and globally.
RBSCL exhibitions showcase its treasures and the stories they tell. On display on the third floor of the library (as well as other campus and off-campus locations), exhibitions are open to the public and free of charge. See Visiting the Library to plan your visit.
