The availability of research facilities and a place for quiet reflection in combination with efficient access to scientific literature is fundamental to a modern university infrastructure.

We support your study, research and teaching activities:

  • MCI provides libraries and study areas with a wide selection of books, journals, magazines and newspapers. The three libraries are also equipped with a printer/copier, a book scanner, reading desks and PC workstations.
  • We offer access to an extensive digital collection of eBooks, eJournals & more from many different subject areas, see databases. This offer is constantly being expanded.
  • All of our online resources are easily accessible on and off MCI campus. To access the licensed online content remotely, please use your usual MCI login.
  • To complement its own library services, the MCI has a cooperation agreement with the University and State Library of Tyrol (ULB).
