Policies and Procedures: Off-Campus Users

During the academic year, 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 Wednesdays and Fridays, from 9:00 AM to 2:00 PM. In view of the priority to serve our faculty, staff, and students, as well as with the overriding concern of the 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–those doing serious, investigative studies–are given a concession on a case-to-case basis and upon an interview-meeting with the Library Director. There is 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 borrow books with the payment of an annual fee of $50.00 (or its NIS equivalent).

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 term/year. Non-access to the Library is strictly enforced.
