EURAC Library

The library consists of a research library and a specialized collection on environment and ecology, called the 'ECO Library'.


The Library is a publicly accessible, specialized scientific library. It supports the research of Eurac Research, as well as other scientific work, further education, and general information needs. To this end, it collects, makes accessible and loans out up-to-date publications and media on the main themes of Eurac Research. External users can consult the library's resources in the reading room (reference library).

ECO Library

The ECO Library is the largest collection in South Tyrol specializing in the environment and ecology. Its facilities are available to the general public and it offers particular support to educational institutions such as schools and public libraries. For this purpose, it collects, makes accessible and loans out media on the following topics: nature and environmental protection, ecology, building biology, horticulture, agriculture, nutrition and naturopathy, as well as hiking, travel, sports and games. All resources are freely accessible and may be borrowed from the library. Special media packages are also available for schools and other institutions.

In principle, all items in the ECO Library can be borrowed by any user with a library card. The general public may not borrow items from the Library. They can, however, be consulted in the reading room.

What we do

Our research addresses the greatest challenges facing us in the future: people need health, energy, well-functioning political and social systems and an intact environment. These are complex questions, and we are seeking the answers in the interaction between many different disciplines. In so doing, our research work embraces three major themes: regions fit for living in, diversity as a life-enhancing feature, a healthy society.
