The University and State Library Innsbruck has one of the largest collections of Canada-related publications in Austria (primary literature as well as secondary literature) and is constantly expanding this collection in consultation with the Canadian Studies Centre.

The cooperation between the two institutions has a long history, from the first donations of the Canadian government to the ULB in the form of co-funding, through regular book donations from the ZKS to the ULB, to sustained support of the ZKS by the ULB.
