Central Chemical Library

Central Chemical Library is one of the largest chemistry libraries in Croatia. It was formed by integrating the holdings of the libraries of the Institute for Physical Chemistry and the Croatian Chemical Society, so parts of library holdings have continuity since 1868. When the library was moved to the new Department of Chemistry building in 2005, its holdings were merged and now cover the fields of chemistry, partly mathematics, physics, biology, chemical engineering and technology and related sciences. Central Chemical Library is intended primarly for the students and employees of Department of Chemistry, but it is also open to all other users.
