TU Graz/ TU Graz/ Services/

Studying and Working in the Library

Library patrons benefit from the library's on-site services. Numerous workstations and PCs encourage focused working, and group rooms are available for collaborative work. All branches are equipped with scanners, copiers, printers and have WLAN.

Service and advice

The lending team issues media under your user account and will answer all your questions on borrowing media. Media are usually borrowed using a library card.

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. 

In addition, you have the opportunity to get help with searching for literature at our info bar in the main library and to commission comprehensive literature retrieval and bibliometric analyses.

Info Bar

At the Info-Bar you get support for literature searches, help with orientation in the library, tips for accessing e-resources, information about our research tools (TU Graz LibrarySearch, DBIS, EZB, etc.), general information about library services and much more. Every question is welcome. If we cannot help you immediately, we will find the appropriate contact for you.
You find the Info Bar on the third floor of the main library. It is available Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. No registration required!
You can also call the Info-Bar at 0316 873 4175 or contact it by email at service.bibliotheknoSpam@tugraz.at.

Places to work and study

The library offers you quiet zones for reading, learning and working. At all library branches you find friendly and bright work spaces with and without computers. You are also welcome to bring your own laptop.

At the circulation desks we provide you with extension cords and connector strips for the duration of your stay.

Group rooms

For working with fellow students a group room is available free of charge in the foyer at the main library as well as in the main library and specialized library Inffeld. Please reserve group rooms via TU Graz LibrarySearch, by phone, by e-mail or on site at the circulation desk.
