Begin of page section: Contents:

The NAWI Graz virtual library is a very good example of how to make best use of synergies beyond research and teaching.
As a result of negotiations with publishing houses, the University of Graz and Graz University of Technology were given the opportunity to jointly purchase literature for both universities at particularly favourable conditions.

The range of the NAWI Graz virtual library comprises:
