E-books and digital media
The AAU university library is continually investing in new e-books. Information regarding e-books that are currently available can be found on the e-book pages.
You can either digitise literature that is not yet available in electronic format yourself at the work space for blind and visually impaired users, or you can contact Andreas Jeitler for the purpose of preparation via Accessibility Services.
