The open access holdings are systematically shelved. An overview can be found in the Online-Catalogue under Classification Search. All media, except for journals, are arranged in alphabetical order by subject groups and within these by serial number. Therefore, media on the same topic can be found on the same shelf.
The shelf mark is the symbol for the location of the media in the shelf and is organized like this:
example: Mankiw: Makroökonomik. - shelf mark: 0PNM011(06)-01+02
subject group according to classification
e.g. Makroökonomische Theorie
e.g. 11th title in this subject group
e.g. 6th edition
e.g. 1st volume
e.g. 2nd copy
To find the media in the shelf you need the 3 to 4 characters (subject group) and the following numbers. After finding the title select the latest available edition.
The following media are in the stacks and may be requested at the lending desk:
These are available within minutes. The special location "Magazin" has no impact on existing lending periods and limitations.
Searching for articles in the Online-Catalogue will not help. To find articles start your research in e-media. Printed journals (latest volume and the previous two volumes) are displayed and alphabetically sorted on the first floor. Older Journals are in the stacks. Current newspapers can be found in the foyer.
If a wanted medium cannot be found in our inventory, we would welcome an acquisition proposal. Please just contact us. You will appreciate that we can only fulfil your requests if our budget allows us to and if the title coincides with the acquisition profile of the University Library.
