The TU Kaiserslautern Library System includes seven Department Libraries and a Central Library, all with predominately open stacks. The collections are classified according to subject fields with the exception of the Library of Mathematics and Physics where the mathematic collection is shelved alphabetically by author and title. The call number, found on the book spine and listed in our catalogue, designates the location of the book. It begins with an abbreviation of the department or subject field (usually the first three letters of the term, as in MAT=mathematics) or a number, which refers to the subject field (45=Political Science, Law), and is followed by a number referring to the subject area within that field and a current number. The Textbook Collection has a special call number beginning with an “L”. The call number of dissertations begins with a “U”, journals and periodicals with a “Z” and newspapers with a “Ztg”. Older and rarely requested literature is located in the closed stacks of the Central Library.
The Department Library of Process Engineering and Economics has shelved its collection of journals and periodicals in the closed stacks of the Central Library. The current year’s issues are however available in the Department Library (Bldg. 42). A brief listing and description of the library’s call numbers can be found in the leaflet “General Overview”.
Older editions of textbooks as well as titles withdrawn from the library’s collections are sold at our yearly book sale. The sale generally takes place at the end of the winter semester on the ground floor of the Central Library (Bldg. 32).
