Short Description

As the largest academic library in the state of Salzburg, the University Library of Salzburg is a professional partner for study, research and teaching. It offers over 2.5 million print media and more than 1,300 reading and workstations with state-of-the-art equipment and the best conditions of use for all learning and working needs at 12 library locations. Independent of opening hours and premises, around 3 million e-books, several thousand e-journals and over 200 literature and research databases can also be used. The interaction of printed and digital media in the sense of a hybrid library is being continuously developed, as are the services offered.

The University Library fulfils a variety of tasks: It ensures the supply of literature in the university environment as well as to the general public; it acts as a mediator of knowledge, education and information; with the collection of the Salisburgensien, the literature published in and connected to the province of Salzburg, it makes an important contribution to the documentation of the province's history; it is dedicated to the collection and (preservation) of selected historical testimonies; it deals critically with its own history in the course of Nazi provenance research; and it supports publications of scientific works in the sense of Open Access with professional expertise.

Research Services

Scientists, students, pupils and other interested parties can find support in all questions of literature and information procurement at the University Library of Salzburg. Teaching information literacy through training courses, guided tours and workshops is just as much a part of the services offered by the University Library of Salzburg as the diverse knowledge transfer through readings, book presentations, exhibitions and presentations of historical holdings from the special collections and the university archive. Furthermore, members of the University of Salzburg are advised on the open access publication of their scientific work on the publication server ePLUS.

Methods & Expertise for Research Infrastructure

With its services, the University Library of Salzburg primarily serves research and teaching in the university sector, but also as a competence center for education and knowledge for all interested parties and as a repository for unique historical and artistic testimonies.
