Do you want to know what media are available in electronic form? Alongside our on-premise media stocks, we also provide a constantly growing collection of electronic media.
Do you require an item that is not in our University Library stocks? As we participate in the national inter-library loan scheme, we can ensure that you have access even to literature that is not available at the University Library.
Are you looking for subject-specific literature or information, for example for research work? You can find quality sources of information at our Specialist Portals.
Are you facing the challenge of writing an academic paper? The Citavi software offers support throughout the entire process, from collecting and managing literature, to task planning, structuring your work, right up to generating a bibliography.
