The ZHAW University Library offers you support and consulting in response to all questions related to information competence, Open Access and publishing. The Library is an attractive place to work and promotes the exchange of ideas and experience on campus.
The ZHAW Zurich University of Applied Sciences was formed in 2007 with the merger of the Zurich University of Applied Sciences Winterthur (ZHW), the University Wädenswil (HSW), the University of Applied Psychology (HAP) and the University of Social Work. The eight existing libraries from these four institutions were combined to create the ZHAW University Library.
In the summer of 2014, the Applied Psychology and Social Work libraries moved into their new premises in the Toni-Areal, which they share with the Media and Information Centre (MIZ) of the Zurich University of the Arts.
The Life Sciences & Facility Management site Library is located in a former cidery museum. Until 2018, the basement housed exhibits, some of them huge. Today, student work and study stations await you there.
Since 2015, the five sub-libraries (Architecture and Engineering, Health, Linguistics, Technology, Business and Law) have occupied a new building in the Sulzer-Areal. These were joined in April 2021 by the former Pro Senectute Library, whose holdings have borne the name Applied Gerontology. As the ZHAW University Library Winterthur, they provide joint library-related services. Find out more about the history in our brochure "Von der Industriehalle zur Hochschulbibliothek".
At their meeting on 26 October 2017, the ZHAW Executive Board agreed to support the University Library strategy. This strategy focuses on four development areas.
Every three years the University Library in Winterthur offers an apprenticeship in Information and Documentation leading to the Swiss Federal Certificate of Proficiency (EFZ). We are no longer accepting applications for the 2022 to 2025 program.
Would you like to do an internship first instead of an apprenticeship, or apply directly for a position at the University Library? Vacancies are published under the department "Finanzen & Services". Filter as needed by "Lehrstelle und Praktika" or by "Administration, Technik, Informatik, Betrieb" to access the library's vacancies.
