AU Library - your digital library

Your options, while the physical library is closed

  • AU Library has closed all access to the libraries. We have closed for all reservations of physical and digital material, collecting/returns and loans from other libraries
  • You can, however, continue to access the electronic resources at library.au.dk.
  • If you have any problems accessing electronic resources, please contact Ask the Library.
  • If you need help with literature searches, reference management, etc., you can find many subject-relevant resources on the Subject Guide pages. You will also find the subject librarians’ contact information here.
  • If you have not yet managed to retrieve essential material from your locker at the library, please contact Ask the library, who may under certain circumstances be able to help you. 

Home access to Karnov

Karnov is allowing home access for students and employees at Aarhus University – up until 27th March 2020.

Trial access to Statista

AU has exceptionally gained access to the Statista portal through June 2020. Statista contains market information in the form of statistics and other data on a wide range of topics such as advertising, telecommunications, groceries, education, transport and tourism. Note that Statista is not a fixed subscription, but is only available with trial access through June 2020.

How do I get access from home?

When you are not on campus, you must first login to your AU Library account, via library.au.dk, in order to access the electronic articles, e-books, databases, etc. Read more about home access.

Where do I find links to the electronic resources?

There are many entry points to the various electronic resources:

  • Search for the material you would like to access in the main search field on library.au.dk. Here you will be searching in our library system, where you will be able to find links to most of the available resources. Read more about the search options.
  • Use one of the Subject Guides that the library staff have created for your particular subject or degree programme. A Subject Guide page is a collection of resources that may be relevant to the subject you are currently studying. An easy entry point for starting your search.
  • Use the database list if you are unable to find the database you are looking via the main library.au.dk search function. In the database list, you must search specifically for the name of the database.
  • You can also take a look at our Resources page where you can find information on and links to other popular resources.
