In order to be able to continue borrowing books free of charge, graduates of the AAU need an alumni card.
You can obtain this card from the Alumni network of the Alpen-Adria-Universität.
The alumni card functions as a library card in the AAU university library and allows books to be borrowed free of charge.
Show the alumni card at the university library loan desk and your previous student account will be reactivated for a year. If required, it can be extended on an annual basis.
