Anlässlich der #ERASMUSDAYS, die europaweit vom 10. bis 12. Oktober stattgefunden haben, hat das International Relations Office der Fachhochschule Kufstein Tirol die Schülerinnen und Schüler der International School Kufstein-ISK zu sich eingeladen.
Your student card also serves as your library card. If you have yet to be issued one, you may still use our services as you are entered in the library system once accepted to any study program.
Generally, all books with a white label are borrowable unless there is an additional red label present, in which case lending is not possible. The non-lending-collection includes reference works, bibliographies, loose-leaf works (some of which are borrowable), newspapers and journal issues as well as books contained in a reference collection.
Some lecturers choose literature they deem important for their students to have available in the library at all times. These are the various reference collections which can be found on a dedicated shelf next to the counter.
Our one-stop-shop for searching is KuBI, which allows for browsing all available print- and digital media - including journal articles - in the library with a single query. KuBI can be accessed via the search field on our main website. For physical media, there is an indication if they are available or on loan in the search results. Databases licensed by the library are also searchable (Exception: Statista). A search query can be limited with several criteria, e.g. type of publication, publication year, language, publisher… If a journal article or ebook is found, a link to its full-text-version is provided – subject to availability. For searching on the library premises, two dedicated PCs are provided.
You may borrow up to eight books for up to three weeks. Loan periods can be extended for up to three times at the earliest five days prior to the end of a period unless someone has made a reservation. Students writing Bachelor- or Master-Theses have extended borrowing privileges.
Books on loan can be reserved in your online user account. As soon as the previous borrower returns the item, an automated notice is provided via email.
You can find your account by clicking on “Mein Benutzerkonto” (“My User Account”) in KuBI:
User Name = Student number
Password = Date of birth in the format ddmmyy
Please change your password after your first log-in!
Yes, this is possible with our interlibrary loan service (“Fernleihe”). Each search query in KuBI can be extended to include works not licensed or owned by the library, which can subsequently be ordered with the integrated online interlibrary loan form (use the “Anfragen”-Request Button). The costs are as follows: 2 € per loan for books within Austria, international loan costs vary. Loan costs for individual journal articles are higher and are in the region of €6 – 10.
In KuBi, if a book is available in the library, a book- or call number is displayed in each search result. This is a unique code identifying every medium in our library collection. On the upper floor the shelves are arranged systematically from A-Z. Example: Found book number: “QQ 000 C229”. The first two letters designate the academic discipline; in this case, “Q” means “Economics” (Wirtschafts-wissenschaften), “QQ” is the sub-category “Special business management textbooks”, the numerical sequence “000” is the additional sub-category – “General”. The following letter-number-sequence “C229” is the encoded author or editor name. For easy orientation, there is a color-coded floor plan at the top of the stairs leading to the upper floor.
