The departmental library is currently still closed. For this reason, there is currently no possibility for students to use the media stock. It is also not possible to borrow media.
We are currently examining the possibility of offering limited use of the media stock again after 20.07.2020. Please inform yourself here on the homepage about the current status.
Academics of the university and students who urgently need literature from the library as part of their bachelor, master, diploma, master's or admissions thesis, please send an e-mail to the departmental library.
The departmental library is a reference library, which means that items can usually only be used on site.
