About us

One library, eight locations – that’s the principle behind the Macromedia Library. The library’s standards and any changes or developments are decided by the dean’s office in conjunction with the library management.


The Macromedia Library is committed to preserving and increasing knowledge. As a central meeting place of the university, we help to shape its culture and everyday life. As part of the university’s academic environment, the library is one of those responsible for creating an academic setting and an academic research environment. Its staff and resources are focused on facilitating the best possible conditions for this.
