Branch Libraries

The Uni­versity Lib­rary has four branch lib­rar­ies on Cam­pus WU. Your valid WU stu­dent ID card or lib­rary card grants you ac­cess to all the branch lib­rar­ies.

OMV Cent­ral Lib­rary

The OMV Cent­ral Lib­rary is located in the Lib­rary & Learn­ing Center (LC).
It con­tains the back­bone of the WU Uni­versity Lib­rary col­lec­tion, fo­cus­ing on in­tro­duct­ory lit­er­at­ure and books for fur­ther read­ing. The Lib­rary also houses the text­book col­lec­tion.

The lib­rary hold­ings also in­clude the col­lec­tions of the De­part­ments of Fin­ance, Ac­count­ing and Stat­ist­ics, In­form­a­tion Sys­tems and Op­er­a­tions, Man­age­ment, Mar­ket­ing, Strategy and In­nov­a­tion, Eco­nom­ics, and Global Trade.
Most of the books from the hold­ings of the Cent­ral Lib­rary can be bor­rowed.

A total of 1,500 self-study work­places are avail­able in the OMV Cent­ral Lib­rary. Dif­fer­ent types of work­places are avail­able for dif­fer­ent study­ing re­quire­ments. The lib­rary has quiet zones, areas for com­mu­nic­a­tion or group work, pro­ject rooms (on­line book­ing and room use for WU stu­dents only), and the Mondi News­lounge.

If you need assist­ance with lit­er­at­ure searches or have any ques­tions regard­ing the use of the lib­rary and its ser­vices, the Lib­rary In­form­a­tion team will be happy to help you.

Please con­tact the lib­rary front desk for all mat­ters regard­ing loans and bor­row­ing. If you want to re­quest a lib­rary card, need help with the self-ser­vice check­out, or have any prob­lems with the pay­ment of fees and fines, please ask the lib­rary front desk team.
