Mission and short history

The University Library was created in 1960 along with the foundation of the 3 years Pedagogical Institute. Although the library's acquisitions were primarily aimed at the objects of study, its holdings also include documents of wider fields of interest, conferring it an encyclopedic character. The library is part of the national higher education system and takes part in the training and educational process, as well as in the scientific research activities of the university's tutors.

Holdings

The library's holdings are permanently developed through acquisition, exchange and donations from both individuals and institutions. The University Library includes a variety of Romanian and foreign documents: monographs, treaties, textbooks and notes, as well as encyclopedias, dictionaries, Ph.D. dissertations, magazines and newspapers, yearbooks, microfilms, CDs and DVDs from various scientific and cultural fields. The library presently holds over 150 000 volumes, 13 000 of these are periodicals. Its 4000 volumes of old books dating from the 18th-19th and the first half of the 20th century are also worth mentioning. The library's oldest document is a French writing dating from 1763 and called "Le spectacle des beaux arts ou considérations touchant leur nature, leurs objets, leurs effets et leurs règles principales", its author being M. Lacombe.

Space and equipment

The library's existence and its development are tightly linked to the University's evolution. Between 2002 and 2009 the library's automation took place and all the documents have been catalogued. The librarys software, Liberty3, is an Internet-based application that incorporates the most modern concepts and allows all library activities to be done electronically: acquisition, cataloguing, circulation, online catalogue, MARC interface, thesaurus, stocktaking, serials, reports, and statistics. The library's online catalogue is accessible at http://biblioteca.upm.ro/Liberty3
In recent years, the library has extended its services to new branches. Presently its activities are located in three different buildings:
- Sciences and Letters Library - a reading room with 90 seats
- Engineering Library - 60 seats
- Economics, Juridical and Administrative Sciences Library - 70 seats
Both the Engineering Library and that of Economics, Juridical and Administrative Sciences offer to their users direct access to their publications by the open-shelf system. The library's reading rooms are all provided with computers and Internet access.

Objectives

The university library's main aims are the following:
- Permanent development of its holdings in accordance with the requirements of study and research;
- Improving and diversifying its services in order to satisfy the users' needs for information and documentation.
