Air University Library collections and information resources are for the use of Air Force PME students and affiliated faculty. AU Library is a Congressionally designated depository for U.S. Government documents. Public access to the government documents collection is guaranteed by public law (Title 44 United States Code). As a selective U.S. Government publications depository, AU Library is open to the general public via sponsorship onto Maxwell AFB by Air Force members assigned to Maxwell/Gunter. AU Library staff members can only sponsor civilians personally known to them. Non-affiliated civilians desiring physical access to AU Library, who do not have a sponsor, should contact the AU Library Director's Office for guidance on submitting a written request for access and credential verification.
