Where are the Books?

Text Book Collection

In addition to their call number of the Reading Room some commonly used standard works are also marked with the notation “LB” (=”Lehrbuchsammlung”, Text Book Collection) in the catalog.
Of these titles there are several loanable copies, arranged in alphabetical order in the Text Book Collection in the lower Reading Room.

One or two copies of a Text Book Collection title are not loanable (marked with the red sticker “P”=”Präsenz and yellow sticker, reference book). So, should all loanable copies be lent, you still have the chance to work in the Library using the reference copy.

Reading Rooms

Frequently used literature such as encyclopaedia, textbooks, handbooks, standards, fundamental works as well as all current journals are kept in the reading rooms.

Here you will find about 20% of our stack.

The books are arranged in subject groups. You will find journals at the end of each group.

Closed Stack

Media from in the closed stacks can be ordered via the catalog. As soon as your book is ready on the collection shelf, you will receive an email and the ordered book will be marked as ‘ready for collection’ in your library account. You can borrow the book from the self-check-in desk within seven weekdays. After that, it will be returned to the stacks.

Institute of TUHH

Books with shelf numbers consisting of three letters and three digits, but starting with a “D” are situated in the institutes of TUHH.
