Library

The TSI library offers its users a wide range of printed and electronic resources. They thematically correspond to the study directions implemented at the Transport and Telecommunications Institute, with an emphasis on STEM fields (natural sciences, technologies, engineering, and mathematics). The library’s collection includes 25,000 printed books in Latvian, English, and Russian languages. Users also have access to an extensive electronic resource collection of 2,700 titles, which include scientific and educational books, scientific publications, and conference materials. The electronic collection is regularly updated. The main users of the materials in the collection are the faculty and students of informatics, robotics, telecommunications, and electronics, as well as aviation and transportation programmes.

The library’s homepage serves as a starting point for searching for quality and reliable scientific information. It contains both a built-in electronic catalog and links to TSI’s subscribed scientific databases, as well as it collects information on high-quality scientific open-access resources relevant to the industry.

The library also has a comfortably furnished reading room, which is designed according to ergonomic principles and is a favorite place for students to study and relax.

Electronic resources offered by the library can be used remotely from anywhere in the world. Our students, especially distance learning students, highly appreciate this opportunity. A modern and functional library homepage provides a functional interface that allows easy access to electronic books. On the other hand, book publishers offer technological solutions that facilitate work with a large amount of information. One can make underlines, comments, and bookmarks in the text. You can print it or save it to your device. You can perform a quick search in the entire book's text, as well as use other useful functions
