History

Historical Overview of the University Library of the University of Music and Performing Arts Graz (UBKUG)

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 college, so the name of the library changed to “College Library”. By upgrading the colleges of the arts to universities, the library became a “University Library”.

In 2000, the UBKUG moved to the new library building in Brandhofgasse.
