Universitätsbibliothek

The library of the Medical University of Graz is a public library that is open to all. Readers have a choice of 180 seats where they can study and work. 52 fully equipped IT workstations provide the most modern infrastructure for our visitors. The books, journals and electronic resources may be used within the library without any restrictions. 

The library is located in the building complex of the Center for Medical Research (ZMF), which is directly on the premises of Med Uni Graz and University Hospital.

„The health sciences librarian believes that knowledge is the sine qua non on informed decisions in health care, education, and research and the health sciences librarian serves society, clients, and the institution, by working to ensure that informed decisions can be made.”
