In order to meet the demand of the medicine and the enormous annual increase in knowledge, Paracelsus Medical Private University relies above all on the online access to medical journals in equipping the 260 m2 large library. Licensed journals and databases are available on the campus of the Paracelsus Medical Private University and the Salzburg University Hospital.
