If you need to contact AU Library, there are various options. Our Q&A Service is open for academic queries, and it is also possible to contact your local service location if your issue has more local relevance.

In addition, AU Library offers help and support in several different ways. We have made subject guides available for a wide range of courses, so that it is easier to find subject-orientated resources, and we also hold courses and workshops in information seeking and reference management.

You are always welcome to write to us, or call, to get help on all practical matters - loans, returns, pin-codes, access, etc. Write to us or call us on 8946 2123. The Service Desk is open Monday to Friday from 09.00-16.00. Note: The service desk is closed during week 29.

 

 


Courses from AU Library

AU Library offers a range of courses that can help you in connection with both reference management and information seeking. The courses provide an introduction to the topics, as well as more targeted help for specific issues if time allows.

You can either book an existing course or request a course.

Subject guides

At AU Library, there are a number of specialists within the different subject areas, who have selected the most important resources and databases for the individual studies - to make it easier and simpler for you to find literature for your particular degree programme.

See more on the subject guide page for the individual subject.

Material from around the world

If you need a book or an article that we do not have at AU Library, we would like to try to help you get hold of it. 

You just need to tell us exactly what it is you are missing.
