St. Poelten University of Applied Sciences

Library

The Library of St. Pölten UAS is a public, academic library accessible to everyone.

Wide range of books and equipment

Based on its media holdings of around 30,000 items, the UAS Library supplies specialized theoretical knowledge and, thus, delivers a solid background for students and persons active in research and teaching. With approximately 1,000 new media purchased every year, the growth of the Library’s holdings results in part from the collection focus of the study programmes and covers a thematic spectrum ranging from media sciences, psychology and economics to social work, sociology, engineering and medicine. The UAS Library now also is a branch of the Public Library of St. Pölten.

Fourteen work places, eight PCs, a colour copying machine and a comfortable seating area are provided to ensure that readers can optimally use the media that also include current daily papers and magazines. A help desk answers questions
on the Library’s services and gives advice in case of problems with a search.

Thanks to modern RFID technology, the media can be borrowed at a self-service terminal and returned by putting them into the book flap in the lobby even when the Library is closed.

On principle, the Library is not only accessible to the students of the UAS. Its services may also be used by persons not working or studying at the UAS.
