There are several locations at Campus Library where you may find your items. They are either available at once or have to be requested from the closed stacks. The respective location is displayed in the catalog.

Open Access Areas and Textbook Collection (floors +2 to -2)

In these areas items are displayed systematically by subject. You can collect them directly from the respective shelf. Items marked with a red dot are non-circulating. Signpost (PDF – 258 KB, In German only)
