History

Although the history of TTK University of Applied Sciences dates back to 1915, not much is known about the first predecessor of the library. The earliest data is from 1944, when the library was named the Library of Tallinn I Industrial Technical School. During the years, the university, together with its library, has changed names many times. The library got its current Estonian name, Tallinna Tehnikakõrgkooli raamatukogu, on January 5 1999. The current English name – the Library of TTK University of Applied Sciences is valid since 2012.

The library operated on the third floor of TTK University of Applied Sciences. Library did not have an open access collection and the items could be searched only by card catalogues. In the beginning of the new millennium library needed to be modernized. In 2006, the construction of the new library began, which created real possibilities for changes.

On November 19 2007, the new library was opened on the 0-floor. In addition to the change of location, both the appearance and work organization changed. The electronic check-out program URRAM was implemented. Readers could choose items from open shelves and use  spacious reading area, 18 computers and 2 private study-rooms.

In 2012, the library joined the ELNET consortium, which unites different kinds of libraries in Estonia. Since 2012, the library uses the integrated library system Millennium. Readers can also see and search items from the e-catalogue ESTER.

In the beginning of 2014 library system Millennium was upgraded to a newer version called Sierra. During the same year we implemented periodicals module so it would be possible to lend scientific and trade magazines.
