The library provides literature and information for study, research and teaching, with the focus on Dance Studies. Non-members of the university may also use it as a reference library on application. The collection has been built up since 1995 in the fields of dance, theatre and music studies. The library contains approx. 8000 items, a quarter of which are audio-visual media, above all dance videos. Specialist magazines about dance and theatre are also available in the collection.
