Policies and Procedures


Off-Campus Users

During the academic year,  that is from September to May, off-campus users – students from other West Bank universities or those coming from overseas – may use the Library and its resources/facilities only on Fridays.   In view of the priority to serve our faculty, staff and students and with the over-riding concern that there is an alarming increase of overdue books from our library clientele including BU graduates, no book loan is allowed to outsiders.

Special researchers on a transient status – doing some serious, investigative studies - are given a concession on a case-to-case basis and upon an interview-meeting with the Library Director. There is a also a very limited list of guest-users, foreign teachers or employees with proof of a year-long residence (or more) and with reference persons  in Bethlehem, who are allowed to loan out books with the payment of an annual fee.

After the summer session and in-between semesters, the Library is closed to all  for an inventory of books and for an upkeep of materials, resources and equipment  in order to prepare for the new academic year.
