Welcome, Gulf University for Science & Technology Alumni

Alumni: Members of the GUST Alumni Association
This site has been organized for quick access to information about A. M. Al-Refai Library’s services, facilities, and resources.

Library Card

Graduates who wish to obtain borrowing privileges must register with the library and get an Alumni Library Card. To register with the Library, Alumni must complete the Alumni Membership Form and submit the signed form along with one photograph and a copy of GUST ID to the circulation desk.



Your Alumni Library card allows you to borrow a maximum of 3 books for a period of 15 days. You are accountable for items borrowed on your ID cards.
Books should be returned to the circulation desk on or before the due date. Failure to return books on time will result in a fine. An overdue book will automatically block a user from borrowing other Library items. The Library will send users two overdue notices. Failure to receive an overdue notice does not exempt a borrower from a fine.


Fines and Penalties

a.      Overdue Fine

Students are charged a fine of 100 Fils per day, per book (up to a maximum of 15 days) unless the book is returned within the 3-day grace period.

b.      Damaged or Lost Items

If a user loses an item, they will be charged the replacement cost of the item, a KD 10/- processing fee and any overdue fines that apply.


On-Site Services

Alumni may use the A. M. Al-Refai Library during the working hours. Alumni also have access to professional assistance from the library staff. Alumni are welcome to use all library services on-site, including access to online journals and databases. To access these electronic resources and the Internet, you will need to show your Alumni Card at the Circulation Desk.

Off-Site Services

Due to licensing issues, electronic databases available to currently enrolled students are not accessible off-site to alumni. However, from your home or office computer you may take advantage of access to the Online Library Catalog and personal account services through My Account.
