Short overview of the history of the University Library

The foundation of the library dates back to 1963, when the Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts Graz has been established. Between 1970 and 1998 the official title of KUG was Hochschule, so the name of the library changed to “Hochschul Library”. By upgrading the Hochschule to a University, the library became a “University Library”.

Since 2000 the UBKUG is located in the new library builidng in Brandhofgasse, where previously stood the so-called "Justhaus" of the former light and water healing insitution "Jungborn".
