Library service to off campus students
KAU cards can be used as library cards.
If you haven't applied for a KAU card and want to borrow books you need to get registered in the library system. Fill out the application form and choose a pin code. The pin is used if you need to request books and to log in to My loans.
N.B! If you later get a KAU card, you need to use that pin code instead.
Using the library from home
You can use the library even if you cannot visit us. On this page you will find links to some of our e-resources. Contact us by phone, email or chat if you have questions or would like guidance.
You can also visit our information desk in Zoom, open Monday-Friday at 10-12am.
Students and staff have access to the library's databases, e-journals and e-books off-campus by logging in with your KauID.
