The lending team issues media under your user account and will answer all your questions on borrowing media. Media are usually borrowed using a valid TU Graz card or an ID card of a different university in Styria. If you are neither a student nor a member of staff of a Styrian university, you can apply for a library card at the circulation desk.
At the main library (old campus) the inter-library loans team can order literature for you that is not held in any library in Graz. Here you can also order professional searches and bibliometric analyses.
The library provides quiet spaces for reading, studying and working.
For work in groups, both the main library (old campus) and the engineering library (Inffeld campus) each have a group room that can be used free of charge. Please reserve the room you want by telephone, by e-mail or at the circulation desk.
The textbook collection contains up-to-date introductory literature for many subjects. Because there is strong demand for textbooks the library keeps multiple copies of each. The borrowing period for textbooks is 60 days.
In order to keep our textbook collection up to date, we purchase new books on an ongoing basis in consultation with TU Graz teachers. If you wish to suggest acquisition of particular books, write to us at order.bibliotheknoSpam@tugraz.at.
The library keeps a large collection of scientific journals, daily newspapers and magazines. Readers can read these in the library or make copies or scans of parts of them.
The libraries have free WiFi for all readers. You can access the internet under TUGRAZguest.
If you have an eduroam account, you also have access to the library’s electronic media and subject databases.
Teachers can request the essential literature for a lecture or course to be kept together in one place for the duration of the course. Please send requests to service.bibliotheknoSpam@tugraz.at.
These course reserves are accessible in the library during our opening hours.
In the main library (old campus) the course reserves are kept on the 3rd floor.
