The Library and Information Centre is an independent decentralized unit of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, comprising the Central Library and its various branches. The Central Library is situated at the heart of the University Campus, opposite the Thessaloniki International Fair trade gate and between the Administration Building and the School of Engineering (see map).

It occupies two buildings: the old building, housing the administrative services and the student reading room, and the adjacent new building, housing the scientific reading room and the Online Reference, Loan & Interlibrary Loan Service.


The AUTh Library was founded in 1925 and began operating in 1927. Initially housed in the old School of Philosophy building, it moved to its own four-storey premises in the heart of the university campus in 1974. The new Central Library building was inaugurated in 2000.
