University Library

Literature for Lectures and Exams

Recommendations by lecturers

Literature recommendations for lectures can be found in KIS, on the homepage of the lecture, in the handbook of modules or in OLAT. Usually relevant literature references are given in the lectures.

These recommendations should be available in the library (see course reserves). If this is not the case you can make an  acquisition request.

Reserve Collection

The reserve collection includes books indicated by university lecturers as relevant literature for their seminars. A copy of this recommended reading is placed on a special shelf in the specific department library. This copy cannot be borrowed and is intended for use in the library. In most cases, other borrowable copies are available.

Old exams

Most of the "Fachschaften" are collecting old exams and protocols of oral exams.

Textbook Collection

The textbook collection is located in the central library (building 32) and contains borrowable study literature for all subject areas except of the A/RU/BI textbooks which are provided in building 2. The loan period is four weeks and can be extended.
The books are arranged according to their subject areas and also contain this subject area affiliation in their shelfmark, which you can see in Katalog+ and is affixed to the spine of the book.

The books are listed in Katalog+.

Electronic Textbooks

Collections of textbooks available as e-books. Within the offered subject areas (biology, chemistry, mathematics and physics so far), these are sorted thematically.

Search for task collections and excercises

Additional task collections can be useful for preparing exams, solving excercices or for a better understanding of lecture topics.

The narrow search will provide sets of task collections, while the results of the expanded search will contain more textbooks with additional excercices.
