Institution Notes:

The University, also known as 'University of Graz', can trace its history back to 1585. It gained its current name and status in 1827. There is some emphasis on music of the 19th century and earlier periods. A Centre for Systematic Musicology has links to the Universität für Musik und darstellende Kunst Graz. Language of instruction is German. The library houses some 40,000 volumes of music and reference works, periodicals and CDs as well as the collections of manuscripts of the St Jakobskirche in Leoben, the Pfarrkirche Weisskirchen, the Konvent der Barmherzigen Brüder Graz (with autograph manuscripts of works by Fr Abundius Micksh and Fr Stephanus Sailer), materials from the Domarchiv in Graz, as well as parts of the collections of the Steiermäkische Musikverein and the Pfarrkirche Rottenmann. Bequests have been received of the works of several local composers.
