Departmental Library for Mathematics


All online services are available without restrictions. We recommend that all members and students of the university primarily use our wide range of e-books, e-journals and databases.

In the departmental library, you will find specialist literature on mathematics. The departmental library also has a large collection of mathematical textbooks and literature on the didactics of computer science.

The entire departmental library collection can be searched via the catalogue. The shelf marks of these items start with "700/".

The departmental library is open for loan and for the use of learning workplaces.
