Library

Begin of page section: Contents:

With over 3.5 million information carriers, the University Library is one of the largest cultural and educational institutions in Styria. It is a library with universal standards, scientific orientation and public mission for the whole region. It increasingly regards itself as a “hybrid library” which, in the sense of sustainable development, not only acquires analogue and digital media, but also manages, archives, analyses and makes them accessible.

Media library

With 350,000 microfiches, DVDs, CD-ROMs and other data carriers for films, images, texts and music, the media library manages the most comprehensive collection in Austria in the field of new media. It provides its professional skills and research know-how to all users. Knowledge transfer is the basis of an increasingly independent handling of information resources.

Special Collection

The University Library houses a major part of the written heritage of the Archduchy of Styria including manuscripts from Styrian and Carinthian monasteries, as well as collections from the Jesuit University.

Digitalisation and Restoration

The Library is regarded as a European centre of excellence for digitalising and restorating precious books and manuscripts. Our high-tech camera-table is the result of in-house development for which there is a great international demand. Our Research Centre for Printed and Written Heritage digitalises valuable, partially unknown writings, in order to make them accessible to science and to the general public.
