The library of FH Campus Wien is the center of academic expertise, providing innovative and comprehensive resources and services supporting the learning and research needs of our community. We are committed to fostering a culture of knowledge sharing, collaboration, and lifelong learning while embracing new technologies and trends.
As a student, life revolves around knowledge and gathering information - and our library is the perfect place for that. 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.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org for access to bank details.
Media that are not in the holdings of the FH Campus Wien library, but are in the holdings of another Austrian library outside of Vienna, can be ordered as an interlibrary loan. Whether a medium is available at another library can be researched via the search engine of the Austrian Library Network. The cost for this service is € 3,- per interlibrary loan.
The lending library determines the loan period, independent renewal is not possible. Please contact email@example.com for renewal requests.
As soon as the ordered medium is ready for pick up at the information desk, you will be informed via e-mail. The item will only be handed out once the fees have been paid.
Journal articles that are not directly available at the FH Campus Wien library can be ordered via Document Delivery. Alternatively, articles can be ordered independently via the document delivery service Subito. The fastest possible delivery option and the most favorable price are automatically selected.
As soon as a printout of the ordered item is ready for collection at the information desk, you will be informed by e-mail. The item will only be handed out once the fees have been paid.
For thematically relevant media that are not available in the library, a purchase suggestion can be submitted. Should the resource be added to the library's holdings, you will be informed by e-mail as soon as the ordered medium is ready for pick up at the information desk or has been activated in the search engine.
A PDF scan with OCR function can be requested from media available in the library by specifying the respective shelving number and correct page numbers. The shelving number can be found via the search engine. A maximum of 20 pages or two chapters can be scanned per order. The order can be placed by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
