Due to the current Covid-19 situation, students are given the opportunity to suggest digital books for purchase via the e-book acquisition request form ebook acquisition request.
After checking whether the respective e-book is available or licensable for the FH JOANNEUM, you will be informed whether your purchase proposal has been approved or rejected.
If students feel that a book or periodical that is currently not listed in our online catalogue would be a valuable addition to our library’s collection, they can submit a suggestion.
