Semester shelves at AU Library

The semester shelves

In order to give students access to the material you have selected for the syllabus, AU Library offers a semester shelf service. 

This is where we gather all the books that form part of the syllabus so that there is always a copy available to the students. As a rule we also buy one or more copies of the books for lending purposes.
