Background - Our aim

  • The Library of the Agricultural University of Athens (AUA) was founded by the Royal Decree of 13th May 1945 "with regard to the publications and the Library of the Higher Agricultural School of Athens".
    At the time of its foundation and for some time afterwards it was exclusively used as a place of study and its collection consisted mainly of works written by professors of Greek and foreign universities.
  • Its upgrading began in 1977 with the recruitment of specialised staff. It was gradually organised and enriched with new material (books and journals) and was used as a place of study for students. Finally it started to offer its first services to its users.

  • Since 1997 it has been housed in a new building and has enhanced its services contributing greatly to the educational and research activities of the AUA community.

  • European Union (EU) Financial Support

Our aim

The Library of the AUA is a centre of collection, processing and dissemination of information and aims to serve and support the educational, scientific and research activities of the University. The constant development of new technologies and their application in the context of library services provide immense possibilities for further enhancement of our library's services aiming mainly to meet the respective needs of our users.
