Library

Welcome to the LBS Library

In correspondence with LBS’s academic programs and research focus, the library collects books and other media on a wide range of business and economics subjects, interculturality and diversity, as well as language textbooks and dictionaries. These principal holdings are supplemented by literature from fields such as law, psychology, philosophy, business ethics and politics. Moreover, a selection of books on Austrian history and culture particularly addresses LBS’s international students. Copies of compulsory course readings are available. All items are conveniently catalogued in an online accessible OPAC.

LBS is a cooperation partner of the electronic media consortium Kooperation E-Medien, and is currently subscribed to EBSCO Business Source Elite. This top-ranked database contains a total of 1800 indexed and abstracted journals and magazines, and almost 1000 journals and magazines in full text (half of which are peer-reviewed), plus many other sources such as more than 10.000 company profiles, country reports and conference proceedings. 

Library services and up-to-date technology are the fundamentals for successful exam preparation, thesis writing and advanced research as well as reading for further interest. On this website, users can also find the shelfmark system and the terms of use and library regulations. The LBS library is monitored by CCTV surveillance, all books are secured with RFID marks, and routine checks are made by the library staff.

Access to the library and its online catalog and databases is restricted to holders of an LBS library ID. Opening hours can vary during holidays or exceptionally change at short notice. For inquiries or acquisition proposals please contact library@lbs.ac.at. The holdings of most academic libraries in Austria can be accessed via the centralized Verbundkatalog.
