The university libraries support the academic programs at the regional centers by providing core library collections, access to all APU online information tools and resources, and a full range of library services. Each regional center includes computers providing direct access to library resources and services. Specialized access information for regional center patrons is available on our Distance Learning Services page.

Distance Library Services

APU Regional Center, online, and off campus students, faculty, and staff hold the same privileges and responsibilities as Azusa campus patrons, but their materials will be mailed (books, media, and kits) or emailed (articles) from the Azusa campus libraries. Mailing is free of charge, and pre-paid return envelopes are included.

Books and media may be requested by selecting "By Mail" as the pickup location on the request screen in the library catalog. Articles may be requested through the ArticleReach option in the library's databases and via the Article Finder form. More information is available on the Interlibrary Services page. Please call (626) 815-6000, Ext. 3272 for any other questions regarding these transactions.

Because of the limited resources at the Regional Center libraries, their materials are not available for checkout by Azusa campus patrons. Most materials are duplicated at the Azusa campus libraries. Check the library catalog for the location of the materials you need, and use LINK+ to request unavailable items.
