Using the library from home
The University Library is closed for visits from Monday 21 December and coming weeks. The reason is the new national restrictions and we all need to contribute to reducing the ongoing spread of infection in society.
We will return after the holidays with more information.
You can also use many of our resources from home, on this page we have gathered some of these resources.
Students and staff have access to the library's databases, e-journals and e-books off-campus by logging in with your KauID.
Improved access to e-resources
Many publishers and database providers currently offer improved or even free access to their resources. These may be resources related to Covid-19 research or resources that facilitate study or work off campus.
E-books and e-journals
For a period, the library is only open 12-2pm every weekday for loan matters. Contact us if you have any questions and we will try and find a solution. We also provide access to e-books and other e-material that can be read from home.
Most of our journals are available digitally. Use our list to search for interesting titles. Here you can see if and to what extent a journal is available. You can also choose to add magazines to Browzine.
Via Pressreader you have access to a number of newspapers. Read more about what access you have to daily newspaper material here.
