All Klagenfurt University Library users that have not registered again since 03.08.2020 MUST register again for access to the 24-hour library!

Please do this on the campus system at “my settings” ->–24-hour library. (https://campus.aau.at)

For the 24-hour library, the same distance and hygiene measure and regulations apply as for normal opening hours:

A protective face mask is mandatory in all areas of the library, including while seated in the reading rooms.

Exception: 
Subject to full compliance with the 3G rule, there is no need to wear a FFP2 mask when seated at the library’s workstations. Library users must be able to produce proof of compliance at the request of the library staff. The requirement to wear a mask resumes upon leaving the workstations.

  • Before entering the library, please use the disinfectant dispenser (outside entrance).
  • Including the PC work stations, there are now around 80 reading and work stations available.
  • During your stay, we recommend you wash your hands regularly and thoroughly.
  • Safety distance of at least one metre must be complied with everywhere in the University Library.
  • Safety distance, as guaranteed by seating arrangement in the study areas, must not be changed.
  • Tables and keyboards must be disinfected before use by every user (disinfectant and tissues available in all reading rooms and in the entrance area).

Extendend access to electronic resources (ebooks, ejournals, databases)

In order to help you deal with the current restrictions we would like to support you by offering you extended access to electronic resources.

Many publishing houses unlock parts of their electronic offers temporarily for free and also extend remote access. Location independent as well as time independent access is possible– please check your proxy settings.

 

PROXY-SERVER: In order to use the electronic resources outside the university (via Surf@ubk, DBIS etc.), please check your browser settings for the so-called proxy server (instructions available in German only).

 

Please find here a current overview of the extra offers which are made available as well as information on remote access:

Remote Access:

to the following law-databases:

  • Lexis 360 (until 31st January 2022)
  • Linde Digital
  • RDB (until the end of 2021)
  • Beck-Online: instructions on how to configurate online-access can be accessed via this link
    Whenever VPN is mentioned in this context the instructions actually refer to the university’s proxyserver. Please note that you need to be connected to the proxyserver before starting your registration, otherwise the “Kostenlos registrieren”-button won’t show up.
