In addition to the regular training sessions on how to use the library and e-resources (surf@ubk, databases, e-books, e-journals), the university library also offers specialist introductions on request. These are tailored to the specific course and are usually carried out by the university library’s subject specialists.

The Alpen-Adria-Universität Klagenfurt and the university library support the open access concept and offer their academics a range of services related to open access publications. In addition to the opportunity to deposit academic publications in netlibrary, the AAU’s institutional open access repository, contracts with renowned publishing houses also allow members of academic staff at the AAU to publish open access publications (free of charge or under considerably preferential conditions).
General information about open access at the AAU and about “netlibrary” can be found on the Open Access page of the university library under “Literature search”.
Further information regarding the open access publication opportunities can be found in the
staff portal of the AAU.
If you have any other questions regarding open access, please contact openacces [dot] service [at] aau [dot] at
The necessary literature is ordered centrally, processed, and made available on the basis of order requests made by departmental staff or academic staff at the university library.
Subject specialists are entitled to place additional orders from the departmental budget.
Orders must be communicated to the corresponding library liaison officer in printed form or via a publisher’s brochure. They will then forward the publishing requests to the library. If you need a copy urgently, you have the option to place an express order. In this case, contact your library liaison officer.
General questions relating to orders can optionally be sent to the following general contact addresses:
Acquisitions department: erwerbung [dot] bibliothek [at] aau [dot] at
Journals department: zeitschriften [dot] bibliothek [at] aau [dot] at
Since 2009, employees at the AAU have provided the university library with two free copies of their publications, subject to a printing subsidy being granted for these by the Research Council. One of these copies is shelved in the so-called “reading corner” of the university library and the other is usually released so that it can be borrowed. Furthermore, lecturers are requested to leave new publications (independent publications and collected works with their own contributions) in the library as a gift, so that these can also be presented in the reading corner and made available.
Primarily, current works are welcomed; older works can also be admitted. We are also happy to accept works by individuals who have been associated with the AAU for a long time in terms of research and teaching but are no longer employed by the AAU.
