IAMO library receives fresh look and new information center
01 June 2021 - IAMO’s new-look library and information center reopened on 1 June 2021 following extensive renovations.
The library was redesigned and fitted with the latest digital technology to ensure the best possible access to information. The overarching goal of the renovations was to create a space where institute staff could hold meetings, conduct courses and work together on joint projects. New workstations and modern IT equipment were added to create a user-friendly work environment.
The library and information center features a service desk that allows users to electronically borrow and return media. The library team is available during opening hours to answer questions about media services, using the space, and the available technology. Institute staff can book the new meeting room and the media lounge via a booking system either on site using the touchscreen or via MS Outlook.
The special library features a reference collection that reflects the institute’s research focus, with the bulk of the material dedicated to the agri-food sector. Books and journals are available in more than 30 languages and include original titles from Central and Eastern Europe. Databases, e-books and e-journals can all be accessed electronically.
