Update: comeback of the 24-hour library!

24-hour access is possible again from Thursday, July first, 2021!

We ask all students and external users to activate the 24-hour library service or to reactivate it:

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)

Please register at least one day in advance!

Your account is activated daily at midnight.

Wheelchair users please contact the loan desk after registration.

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

The requirement to wear FFP2 masks throughout the library is based on the relevant provisions applicable to the university as a whole.
A protective face mask is mandatory in all areas of the library, including while seated in the reading rooms.

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).
  • Only one person in the copy rooms at any time.
  • Only one person in the elevator at any time.
