LB 2: natural sciences, medicine | Institutsviertel, Ernst-Zermelo-Str. 1
All books in the textbook collection can be checked out of the library.
If all copies are already out on loan, you will often find a reference copy of titles from the textbook collection in the reading room. Users can also usually reserve a loanable copy from the stacks.
Textbook collection 1 comprises media from the humanities, economics and law. The entire collection is held on, and can be checked out from, floor -1 of the University Library.
Textbook collection 2 includes medical and natural science subjects and is therefore held in the Institutsviertel, a building closely related to these fields.
The additional reading section consists of around 13,000 printed books.
It is arranged by topic and provides a general overview of everything you need to know about all subject areas. Whether you prefer the classics or modern literature from around the world, want to bury yourself in popular science books or are interested in crime novels or art travel guides, there is something for everyone in the FZ section.
