Tallinn University Academic Library (Estonian: Tallinna Ülikooli Akadeemiline Raamatukogu) is one of the most comprehensive research libraries of Estonia in all fields of knowledge.
The library was founded in April 1946 as the Central Library of the Estonian Academy of Sciences. Although the library is quite young, the Library of St. Olaf's Church (founded in 1552) makes up the oldest part of the collections.
