... technical and scientific literature for science and teaching


The Library has a collection of 670.000 books, including theses and dissertations from Graz University of Technology, and about 1.680 print journal subscriptions. Additionally you find a collection of German and Austrian patents and standards. The entire print collection can be searched via the library catalogue.
Special emphasis is placed on providing comprehensive electronic information resources.


National and international standards (mostly ÖVE/ÖNORM and ISO) are part of our collection. Standards can be found through the online catalogue. However, standards published before 2007 are not yet in the catalogue. Please check availability of older standards at the information desk . Research for standards can also be done through Perinorm database or on the websites of the standard publishers. For Austrian standards go to www.on-norm.at , for DIN standards check www.beuth.de.

Please note that standards are not given out on loan! They are available at the circulation desk on the 3rd floor and only intended for short term use within the library.


We provide access to a high number of both printed and electronic proceedings like Lecture Notes (Mathematics, Computer Science) and the Bulletin of the VDI (Verein deutscher Ingenieure).


The last ten years of journal volumes are available on open shelves on the first floor. Older volumes are in closed stacks and should be requested at the journal section's desk.

The subject libraries as well as the institutes of the university house own collections of subject specific journals. These journals can be accessed during opening hours.

When searching for a specific journal title please use the Austrian Union Catalogue /journals & periodicals. There you will find the journals from our library and other Austrian academic libraries. All of our licensed e-journals can also be found in the EZB (Elektronische Zeitschriftenbibliothek).
