Semester literature when you are teaching

AU Library can help you obtain copies of the semester literature so that it can be made available to your students. Either by adding it to the permanent collection at one of our libraries or by placing it on a semester shelf.

We are also happy to assist you in teaching your students how they can find their semester literature by themselves.

Need help?

If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact the liason librarian associated with your field, who will be happy to assist you with your questions.

Alternatively, you are always welcome to contact your local library.
