Library Catalog & Journal Access

Many thanks to users who are continuing to report broken links within the library catalog. We are working diligently to restore catalog access points to journals and electronic books and understand the frustration this process is causing.

Access to research databases using Journals A to Z, LibGuides, and the library's Databases by Title web page is fully restored for users on and off campus.

Journal Access & AU Library Catalog
  • Restoration of access to 74,000+ journal links from the library catalog is in progress.
  • Records are being restored in batches of 5,000 and over 15,000 records have been loaded thus far.
  • We anticipate the process will be complete within the next six to eight weeks.

Electronic Books & AU Library Catalog

  • We are continuing to restore access to our e-book collection from the library catalog.
  • There are currently 46,000+ e-books in the catalog from different vendors.
  • It is anticipated full access to e-books in the catalog will be restored by the end of the term.
