Library Account

In order for SAU students to check out books with the library, and or use our interlibrary loan service, a student account must be created. Students may visit the library at the circulation desk or use the registration button below.

Registration for SAU Students/Faculty/Staff

Cooperative Borrowing from CRC System

Faculty members, currently enrolled students, administration officials, and members of the CRC staff may borrow books from any CRC (Saint Augustine’s University, Shaw University, Meredith University, Peace University, and NCSU) institution library. CRC students must present a CRC Direct Loan Request Form at the Prezell R. Robinson Library Circulation Desk. CRC faculty and staff may obtain a borrower’s card at no charge. A photo ID and proof of current affiliation is required upon application. Familiarize yourself with the policies and restrictions of the library from which you borrow.

Please note that this is a program of privileges. At its discretion, a participating institution may suspend the privileges of its own faculty members or of the faculty members of another participating institution.
