Reading room holdings

The reading rooms are home to more than 230,000 volumes. You will find encyclopaedias, dictionaries, bibliographies, compendiums, editions; in short: basic literature for all subject areas.

Arranged by subject

The holdings in the reading rooms (LS) are distributed across four floors and arranged by subject area. Within this system, the books are systematically sorted into subfields.

You can walk along the shelves and pull out newly discovered titles or go to your favourite places to search for something specific. An outline of the books hangs from each shelf unit. Or you can look up the reading room classification system online.
