The libraries represent the place where information is kept, systemized and conveyed. Furthermore, beside its functional role, a university library seldom has a social role, being the place where students and professors exchange ideas and conceive new projects.

The library of the University of Agricultural Sciences and Veterinary Medicine Cluj-Napoca was founded along with the Institute of Agronomic Studies Cluj-Mănăştur, in 1869.

The first mention regarding the funds of the library is dated in 1872, when the Yearbook of the Institute mentions the existence of 881 volumes.

The inauguration of the new headquarters of the library took place in October 2005. This building makes available to the users a room of 20 seats with free access to the shelves , a reading room of 100 seats and 20 computers with internet access.

The USAMV library owns a documentary collection of books, magazines, newspapers, DVDs of over 164.000 volumes managed via "Liberty3", an integrated library automation system.

The collection of old books comprises over 10000 volumes of great documentary value.
