It has been said that the way to the laboratory leads through the library. That statement is true. Without books, journals and information, there cannot be any work of professional value or any good learning, teaching or research results. Thus, the library in a way reflects the image of the institution in which it operates. This is especially true for faculty libraries, which must cooperate in teaching and scientific work.
The library of the Department of Material and Metallurgy and the Department of Geotechnology, Mining and Environment grew with the departments. Towards the end of 2014, the library collection totalled 45,511 books as well as graduation and thesis papers, 10 units of unbound material and 11,755 printed foreign and Slovenian journal titles. Throughout the year, the library lent out 2,430 volumes of material to its students, professors and other users. Electronic sources are available on DIKUL, i.e. 31,900 e-books and eight databases.
