  • More than 16,000 audio cassettes and CDs (music, audio dramas, readings)

Refine the search results in Katalog plus to video/DVD or audio media types to specifically find audiovisual media.

Terms of use for CDs and audio recordings

All users with a library card can use audio CDs and cassettes.

Audio CDs (“CD” and “SP/C”) can be reserved via the lending system for use in the reading room or media centre. Audio cassettes (“TK”) can only be used in the media centre. For every audio cassette, the identical number with the “TK/T” identifier can be used to reserve a supplement with explanatory notes.

The audio recordings can be used in the library with headphones. They should not be removed from the building.

As an exception, lecturers at the University of Freiburg and the University of Education can take out audio recordings on short-term loan for their lectures.

Terms of use for VHS tapes and DVDs

Videos and DVDs can be ordered via Katalog plus. 

The issue and return of the media takes place at the information desk on the ground floor of the UB.

For copyright reasons, the use of video cassettes and DVDs is reserved for members of the University of Freiburg for personal scientific purposes only.
