Aarhus University Library is your university library which includes all the libraries located on campus as well as Det Kgl. Bibliotek - Aarhus on Victor Albecks Vej.
In collaboration with Det Kgl. Bibliotek we give you access to all the research and literature you need throughout your studies at AU.
AU Library has multiple locations. You are free to choose which library you wish to make use of, when you need to pick up and return books. However, if you have any academic questions regarding a specific field it would be wise to pick a library that is connected to that specific field.
As a new student at Aarhus University, you must log into our library system using your AU login (WAYF) and register as a user. You can then order and lend books, use the library printers and access our electronic resources (articles, e-books, databases). Find out more about how to register as a user.
AU Library has a joint print and copy solution. With your library login you can automatically gain access to print and copy and use the service on all the different locations. Read more about prices, print options and more.
Each library provides you with the opportunity to use their reading rooms, group rooms, work spaces with widescreens, computers with internet access and much more. These study environments are accessible to everyone.

You have to register as a library user to get access to our online resources when you are off Campus (home access). Home access means that you can gain access to e.g. electronic journals, e-books, databases and much more from any PC you use, both from home and from abroad, e.g. as an exchange student.
AU Library offers print facilities at all the libraries. You log in and pay online and upload the files that you wish to print. When you are ready to print you simply log on to a printer at the library. Read more about our print facilities and how to get started.

Some of the libraries have bought curriculum literature for your specific course and this literature can be placed on seperate shelves (semester shelves) or in the reading room. This literature can be used on site and can be copied or scanned for personal use.
The opening hours vary from location to location, but most libraries have 24/7 access for students and employees associated with the faculty.
There are many different study seats spread out across the libraries. We have made a summary of where you can find them.
