Update: Returns and modified rules for library loans

The ongoing situation has prompted us to adjust the lending periods yet again:

Final automatic renewal up to Monday, 26 April (of all works due by that date)

  • Returns:

Please ensure that all loan items are returned by 26 April 2021. There will be no further automatic renewal after that date. At the same time, we are offering a goodwill period of two weeks for returns. This means that no reminder fees will be charged for missed deadlines up to 10 May.

If necessary, you may also return borrowed items to us by post.

In the event that you are unable to arrange a return of the items on loan to you, please contact schalter [dot] bibliothek [at] aau [dot] at!


  • Special lending terms:

Students and external users will continue to be able to borrow up to 6 works from the open access collection.

Until the return of the 24h library, we have made temporary provisions to allow works to be borrowed from the open access shelves for 30 days (instead of the usual 3 days)! You can extend this yourself for up to 90 days via the online search engine “surf@ubk”.

Works from other locations can be borrowed as usual. Conditions for people with extended lending rights will also remain in place.
Please find more information about the permissible number of items and lending periods at: https://www.aau.at/en/university-library-klagenfurt/use-and-service/borrowing-2/

Works that have been reserved must be returned on time!
Interlibrary loan items must also be returned on time!
