A big part of our stock are books. In the reading room, they are ordered by subjects and for loan (except for some reference works marked with a yellow label on the spine).
Literature recommendations given by some professors for their lectures are to be found in the shelves next to our group rooms. These are not for loan.
Apart from scientific literature for our degree courses, there are also some "service for families" media:
- Children's corner with non-fiction books matching the degree courses of the University of Applied Sciences Augsburg, including tiptoi®-books and -pens (shelfmark 180/...)
- Literature on home care (next to the reference works, shelfmark 190/...)
Non-book material, i.e. DVDs, BluRays, CDs and CD-ROMs, is located near the journals. (The shelfmarks of these media begin with 170/... in the library catalogue).
Here you can find films (documentaries as well as movies), language courses, video tutorials and audio books.
Newspapers and journals
Our print journals are in alphabetical order in shelves near the copy room. The collection comprises about 170 current journals matching the range of studies offered at the University of Applied Sciences Augsburg.
