The most important and latest publications, textbooks, and items set aside for particular lecturers on reserve shelves (Handapparate) are directly available in the reading room 3012, 3rd floor (open shelves). In addition, you will find all new acquisitions made by the library and current editions of print journals. The systematics (information in German) provides information on where to find items in the reading room’s open shelves (“shelf marks” beginning with A… , B, … etc.) Books available on the shelves can be used in the reading room and partly be duplicated (see “copyright” below). Items from the archives (“location” beginning with a… , b, … etc.) must be requested in advance (takes approx. one day).
