The libraries provide all services related to media and information resources on all university campuses. These include the reliable and prompt provision and management of a comprehensive range of media along with competent guidance on accessing subject-specific literature in print or online.
In addition to 80,000 traditional media and over 25,000 German and English e-books, the libraries provide access to millions of documents from several thousand academic journals.
As well as providing access to a wide range of informational resources, the libraries offer a comfortable working environment on each of the three campuses. All three campus libraries have been renovated in recent years.

- 2009 – construction of new library on the Tuttlingen campus
- 2011 – construction of new library on the Schwenningen campus
