5. How do you register with AUL?


Active institutional users
If an individual is among the most common institutional categories (for example teaching staff, student, technical and administration staff, fixed term contractor) and is active, they are automatically registered by the secretariat administering the category and hence should not need to register using the methods indicated below.
Hence, such users are automatically registered and authorised as long as their status remains active.

Graduate students
Students that have graduated from the Politecnico are also registered in AUL and do not require further registration.
These users are registered and authorised. They may request a valid password from the AlumniPolimi office.

Non-institutional users, or ex-institutional users that are no longer active (excluding Politecnico graduate students)
Non-institutional users that have never been registered in AUL, or ex-institutional users that are no longer active, should also make arrangements for prior registration with AUL, and may proceed in two ways:

Registration
This is done by contacting an operator at one of the SBA area libraries, who having verified the user data, will arrange for registration in the registry and provide the user with initial access credentials (to be altered at first login).

In any case, after registration, before being able to access services, it is essential to be authorised.
These users are neither registered or authorised.
