Providing a foundation for your studies and scientific work, we offer a vast treasure trove of information and catalogs. Whether on-site or remotely accessed from your couch - we offer you various research options:

The library is an open-stack library, which means that available media can be taken from the shelf independently and borrowed on the spot. It is possible to borrow 30 media items at a time. The borrowing period for books, AV media and diploma and master theses is 31 days. This period can be extended to a maximum of six months by timely extension via the search engine, provided that there is no pending reservation for the respective media.

Journals, media marked as reference collection, as well as works in course reserves can only be used on site. More information can be found in the Conditions of Use of the Library and Media Center.

Our holdings are arranged according to the Regensburger Verbundklassifikation (RVK). This means that you can get information about the content based on the shelving number and thus browse the shelves for topics even without previous research.

For members of FH Campus Wien, the Campus Card serves as a library card. As soon as the Campus Card is activated, the use of the library is free of charge.

In order to obtain a library card, external users need a valid photo ID, the current proof of residency as well as the completed application form. When issuing the library card, a one-time fee of € 2,- will be charged.

Media can be requested in the library account after you have logged in. You will be informed by e-mail as soon as the item is available for pickup at the information desk for a period of one week.

During opening hours, media can be returned at the counter, at a self-checkout machine or outside opening hours via a return flap next to the library door. Media returned via the book drop will not be booked as returned until the next opening day.

The library will charge € 2,- per reminder. In addition, late fees of 20 cents per medium and per day will be charged. The library account is automatically blocked as of the first reminder. Further borrowing or renewals are only possible after all pending media have been returned and the fees have been paid in full.

Payment of fees is made on site in cash, by Campus Card, or by bank transfer upon request. Please contact for access to bank details.

The perfect work environment

We offer all necessary equipment and services on site so that you can fully concentrate on your studies. In addition to the extensive range of equipment, we also offer further access to literature and media in order to help you find exactly what you really need for your work.
