The Library of the Department of Teacher Studies

The Library of the Department of Teacher Studies is part of the University of Zadar library. The present library is the successor to the Library Fund of the Pedagogical Academy, which was founded in 1963. As a higher education library, with its fund and activities, it is intended for students, teachers and associates of the Department, as well as for other members of the wider community that are engaged in scientific and professional work. The library consists of an open access for users, covering 90 m2, with a borrowing part and a reading room, as well as a closed access that covers 8 m2. The library also has an office for acquisition, inventory and processing. There is a reading room with 12 seats and 4 computer workstations that students can use to write seminars and graduate papers, search online catalogs, access electronic sources of information and databases. The library was subscribed to about 30 magazines a year, but that number decreased due to the ability to access to a large number of electronic magazines and online databases (bibliographic, citation and full text). Today, the library is subscribed to 12 magazine titles a year and the School Gazette.

Part of the fund is a collection of masters and doctoral dissertations of professors who have taught at the College for Teacher Training as well as the graduate papers of students. Since 2016, doctoral dissertations and master’s theses are stored in the Digital Repository of the University of Zadar.
