Textbook Collection for Law Relocates This Summer

This summer, the law section of the textbook collection will move from the Central Library to the Library for Law.

  • New location: Starting August 18, 2024, law textbooks will be available for WU students next to the front desk of the Library for Law.

  • Borrowing: You will continue to be able to borrow these textbooks for 6 weeks and, if there is no other reservation, extend your loan.

  • Returns: Beginning August 18, 2024, you can return legal textbooks to the Library for Law or use the self-service book return machine at the Central Library.

If you need textbooks during the summer, please note the summer closing times of both the Central Library and the Library for Law.

We look forward to welcoming you to the legal textbook collection of the Library for Law from August 18, 2024.


The Library for Law collects literature from all fields of law and legal studies. In accordance with the key research areas of WU’s academic units, the collection focuses on the following topics: public law, civil and business law, employment and social security law, European and international law, economic criminal law, intellectual property law, tax law, accounting, and tax management.

In addition, special literature on tax law can be found at the Institute for Austrian and International Tax Law.

The Library for Law provides access to a collection of legal literature in the field of Central and Eastern European Economic Law (FOWI) in the following languages: Croatian, Polish, Russian, Romanian, Slovak, Slovenian, Czech and Hungarian.

The library currently has a total of 75,000 books and active subscriptions to about 320 print journals.

Library Use/Loans

WU staff can use two self-service checkout machines to borrow materials from the Library for Law.

WU students and external library patrons may not borrow books but may use them in the library. A reference collection with the most important reference works for all legal subjects is always available in the reading room for all user groups. For this reason, these reference books cannot be borrowed by scientific staff either.

There are four color scanners which can be used free of charge. You can save the scans as PDF, TIF, or JPG files on an external storage device (USB flash drive, external hard disk drive, memory card).
