Universidad Austral

Austral University Libraries includes five libraries which are located on its different campuses: Facultades library, IAE Business School library and Health Sciences library (Pilar, Buenos Aires province), Baires library (Buenos Aires City) and Rosario library (Sante Fe province).  Our Libraries’ mission is to provide constant support, service and guidance for teaching, research and study activities, covering the information needs of faculty, researchers, students, alumni and the learning community. The libraries are divided in different reading and silent study rooms. The collections are open and available to everyone in the university and its shelves are identified by the different faculty colours; this as an easy way for the library users to identify the topics of information they´re looking for. Due to its great heritage importance, the libraries have under their guard the special collections of José María Ruda -a distinguished international jurist-, the personal collection of the archaeologist Julian Caceres Freyre, the photographic archives of Jehan Vellard and Prof. Echauri’s philosophy and aesthetics collection.
