Welcome to Azusa Pacific University Libraries information for International Students! We realize that you have come from different cultural and educational backgrounds, including the fact that many times US libraries are different from those around the world. Therefore, the library has resources and services that we help you adjust to library research in the US and to help you succeed in your academic experience at APU. Not only is there a librarian assigned (Denise Gehring) to help you as international students, there are many other librarians with specific subject specialties that you can contact for research assistance. Please be sure to contact someone if you need assistance with your research.
