About the KLU Library
The KLU Library aims to provide easy access to relevant literature and data to support learning, teaching and research activities by offering access to the campus library, its collection, services and facilities and to electronic resources on- and off-campus.
Past & Future
The KLU Library was founded in 2011. It is the place to go for information and literature about logistics and management. We support our users in all aspects of their academic activities, studies or research. Our holdings contain more than 10.000 online periodicals, 6000 print media and more than 27.000 e-books. The campus library offers a well-equipped and calm working environment, as well as access to computers, printers and scanners.
The Library provides mainly online resources. Access to information resources, publications and data should be easy and available wherever and whenever you need it. This also makes it easier to use and share found information with others, e.g. for group assignments and research projects, thus enabling collaboration and work across borders and around the clock. The KLU Library is a hybrid library, as we also have a well-stocked print collection, mostly books, few print journals and reference media. We offer many library and information services; we set up access to books, journals and databases, enable loan of library media, maintain course literature shelves, offer subject search and research support, train information literacy skills, help with references, printing, scanning and software, support getting materials at other libraries, and much more.

The Library is part of the Information Management & Library Department. We are responsible for developing a sustainable information infrastructure at the KLU to support teaching and research activities. We cater to and co-operate with all our user groups, e.g. when developing new services. Successful in-house corporations and implementations include supplying course literature, the KLU publications database, our link resolver, research projects database and documentation, discovery services and the campus management system.
The Library continues to grow and develop its collections and services. We apply a pragmatic step-by-step strategy, e.g. in collection development and when introducing search tools and resources. We welcome ideas for improvement and are often able to implement proposals from students and staff.
