Short Introduction

The University Library of Regensburg acquires mainly literature on French, Spanish (including Hispano-American) and Italian philology (literature and linguistics) with a focus on the respective current study and research literature. In the mentioned sub-disciplines of Romance Studies, not only reference works ( lexica, encyclopaedias, handbooks, language dictionaries), literature on didactics, monographs on important individual topics or primary and secondary literature on the authors of Romance Studies are acquired, but also literature on the research foci of the Institute of Romance Studies. In addition, it is our goal to provide you with fundamental literature on the following sub-areas of Romance Studies, which are not primarily maintained at the university: Portuguese, Romanian, Catalan, Sardinian and Rhaeto-Romanic philology. At present, 146 journals in printed form are kept up to date. The conventional literature is increasingly supplemented by electronic media (text corpora, eBooks) and subject-specific research instruments (full text databases, bibliographic databases).

Within the scope of its financial possibilities, the University Library of Regensburg always endeavours to acquire the literature you need. Please inform us about your acquisition suggestions.
