The Library of A.T.E.I. of Thessaloniki was founded in 1974. It is located in an area of 600 square meters, in the central building of the Institution and provides services to 23 Departments of the 5 Schools of the Institution. The main collection of the Library includes material for the scientific knowledge that is covered by all the Departments of the Institute, in order to ensure an immediate access to the collection by the patrons and finally meet the educational and research needs of students and the academic staff. In that case, the loan of the material will be done according to the library loan regulations. However, the collection includes material that is not available for loan such as information material, journals, reserved books collection, audiovisual material, etc. The reference collection consists of general encyclopedias, specialized encyclopedias, dictionaries, bibliographies, biographies, directories, audiovisual material, guides-directories, manuals, journals, indexes and abstracts of journals, geographical sources, maps, government publications (Journal of the Government), almanacs, reference material, templates, tables, statistical data. The Academic Staff lists the books of the reserved books collection that will be used from students during that semester. Journals issues, current or older volumes, are not available for loan. However, patrons are allowed to photocopy articles according to the EU platform. In order to provide better services to patrons and through the project “Modernization of the Library of A.T.E.I. of Thessaloniki”, which is part of the “Operational Project for Education & Initial Professional Training”, three reading rooms were created. Two of them are located on the main building of the campus (rooms 200 and 300) and the third one on the building of the Health and Caring Professions’ Faculty. Their aim is to provide services to a larger number of patrons. Although, these places are mainly used as reading rooms, they do provide access to the library’s electronic services via the available networked PCs. The services offered from the Library are:
