About the Library

The Alphacrucis (AC) University College Library exists to provide staff and students of Alphacrucis (AC) University College with all the information resources they need for their learning, teaching and research pursuits. It has been in operation since the founding of the University College in 1948. A brief history of the library is provided here.

AC uses Ex Libris Alma® library services platform along with the Ex Libris Primo® discovery solution for the management of library resources and research materials. Through the Alma platform and Primo discovery tool, AC offers multilingual search functions, access to hundreds of thousands of online resources, and a single catalogue for searching in all physical and online collections. A physical collection is housed in each campus and opening hours for each branch vary throughout the year.

We welcome library members from alumni and those outside AC. Please submit your completed library membership form to join.
