Accreditation

Accreditation is not a legal permission but, rather, deals with the qualitative nature of the educational system. AUM is a private, not-for-profit University, and has been accredited in Jordan since 2011 by the Higher Education Accreditation Commission (HEAC), which operates independently of the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research, thus providing an independent evaluation of the university. AUM also intends to seek accreditation in the United States.

Library

The permanent and full-sized AUM Library will be constructed in Phase II of campus construction in accordance with the University Master Plan. However, we planned interim arrangements in Phase I to have sufficient space for library holdings, including books, reference materials, and journals in addition to several reading rooms distributed in the academic buildings that are operational in Phase I. According to this interim arrangement for library space, we designed and constructed two large rooms to hold all library materials: one for science-related subjects, and the other for the humanities. Currently, the building of the Faculty of Business and Finance houses the two sets of materials. Each of these rooms has an area of 100 square meters (1230 square feet) and is fully furnished with shelves and stacks.

The library provides a collection of print and electronic resources. The book collection contains over 40,000 prints and a number of databases for e-journals and e-books. The library also accommodates both wired and wireless computer access.

The library organizes knowledge resources through technical methods of cataloging, classification, and indexing by using the Anglo-American Cataloguing Rule 2, the Dewey Decimal Classification, and the International Standard Bibliographic Description. Computers are used in all of the library’s services and activities, in addition to using a full integrated library system called Koha to support those services.

The interim arrangement also provides 8 reading rooms, 100 square meters each, fully furnished with reading tables, computers, and chairs for library users.

The permanent AUM Library is currently being designed and construction of the library is expected to be completed by end of 2016.

Standard library services provided to students include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Circulation: intranet style system, accessed by means of computer terminals. As with most contemporary systems, students access lending facilities without the assistance of staff, by means of their university identity cards.

It is expected that some of the reference collection will be accessible by means of the virtual library. Reference Services assists students in finding books, using the on-line catalog, searching the card catalog, selecting resources, and answering general information questions. The Reference Section in this area includes encyclopedias, dictionaries, atlases and other general and subject-specific reference books.
