A Caring Learning Zone

Library Number: 3578022D2019385

Welcome to Petra Christian University Library, where the joy of learning goes beyond the pages of books. More than just a place to study, we’re dedicated to creating an environment that nurtures a rich learning experience. Since 1966, our journey has taken us from a modest collection to a dynamic hub for academic growth. Our motto, “A Caring Learning Zone,” reflects our commitment to being more than just a traditional library. We’re not just here to provide information; we’re here to build a learning community that supports academic and professional journeys, no matter where or when.

Our History

Established in 1966 with 696 books and 46 magazines, our library has grown alongside Petra Christian University. In 1977, we moved to the purpose-designed Siwalankerto building, and in 1992, we took another step forward by integrating technology with the establishment of SPEKTRA, our integrated library automation system.

Embracing the digital age, we officially connected to the internet in 1995, adopting the concept of a “Library Without Walls.” Today, we extend our reach globally, providing online services since 1996. Beyond physical boundaries, we’ve become a learning companion, offering internet access, online searches, reference services, and more.
