Library services

In the Medicine and Sciences Library large parts of the collections are accessible directly in the open access area. A smaller part is stored in the library stacks and must therefore be ordered ahead. All locations are indicated in the library's online catalogue.

Open Access Areas and Textbook Collection

In these areas items are displayed systematically by subject. You can collect them directly from the respective shelf. Items of the circulating collection have a white or a blue label, items of the non-circulating collection have a green label.

Closed Stacks

The closed stacks are not accessible. All items displayed in the catalogue with location "closed stack" have to be ordered. Items of the circulating collection can be collected from the self-service shelves at the ground floor. Items of the non-circulating collection, journals and books published before 1920, can be collected at the service desk at the ground floor.

A book scanner is available at the Medicine and Sciences Library on the ground floor. In this project piloted in the Library of Education and Sport sciences, high quality scans can be produced and saved at a flash drive or send to your phone. The scanners are book friendly, environmentally friendly, quiet and low-emission.
