Looking for a good page-turner or textbook? No problem: with around 38,000 printed books - and some new additions throughout the year - the student library offers students an extensive and up-to-date reading supply from Homer to Houellebecq. You'll find world literature, crime and light fiction, art books and travel guides.
Readers can find a broad range of field-specific literature about history and politics, sociology and psychology, literature studies, philosophy and religion, film and music, etc.
You can borrow books for four weeks for free. And because books within certain subjects are ordered according to authors, the library is very accessible and easy to use. The stock of books has been recorded in HEIDI since 1971.
