About the Library

The Library for technical and Bio-technical Sciences was developed from the Higher Maritime School of Dubrovnik, established in 1959.

The Library is situated in the main University building, Ć. Carića 4, and it consists of three rooms on approximately 120m2. The library is used by lecturers, assistants and students of technical and bio-technical studies. Limited publications, serial publications, half-publications can be found there. It also holds a collection of regional titles pertaining to the history and development of tourism in Dubrovnik.
