Due to the increasing number of infections, the Library will be closed again from 3 July. Literature requests can still be sent by email to our service email address. You will receive feedback as to when the books will be available and then pick them up within our opening hours. Please report to the reception of the building Hauptplatz 8.

Summer opening hours
29 June - 7 August: Mon - Fri from 9 - 15
10 August - 6 September: closed
7 September - 25 September: Mon - Fri from 9 - 15  

During all contact situations, the minimum distance of 1 meter must be maintained and a nose-mouth protection must be worn.    


The Library is about to undergo the largest system changeover in 20 years. As of September 7th we will be working with our new library system ALMA. This will also replace the familiar online catalogue and be replaced by a new search engine, which will be accessible from this date at sub.ufg.at.
The basic functionalities will remain the same. You will need the book number and the location to fetch books yourself from the open stacks or the magazine. Reservations, inter-library loans, saving search queries or memorising titles can be carried out and managed online. 
The most important change for students and staff of the university is that your data in ALMA will be synchronized directly with ufg.online and you will therefore not have to register separately in the library. This means that from this point on you can use your ufg.online data with the University Library's search engine and only have to make any changes to addresses etc. once within ufg.online
