Access issues?

  • If you are using a work computer, you can experience connection issues to AU Librarys electronic ressources.  These problems are usually caused by your workplace/organisations Firewall, blocking download of articles from AU Library.

In such cases we recommend you to either use your own private computer to download articles, or contact your organization/workplace IT department to have the two ports opened that their network not immediately allow access to.
