Acquisition of further electronic resources

The print holdings of the University Library are currently not accessible. Therefore, we are trying to acquire urgently needed literature in the online version.

  • Lecturers: submit library orders
    In preparation for the coming semester, we kindly ask all lecturers to send their library order lists to the Subject Librarians as soon as possible so that the availability can be checked and the desired e-resources purchased. Lecturers may find more information under Notes on Online Teaching 2020.
  • Students: suggest a purchase
    Students are welcome to use the form Suggest a Purchase to inform us about literature requests.
