Collection profile

The University Library of Regensburg acquires literature on all areas of sports science. The main focus is on current study and research literature. Textbooks and reference works ( lexica, encyclopaedias, handbooks, language dictionaries) on all sub-disciplines of sports science represented in the University Library are acquired, as well as literature on research foci at the University and monographs on important individual topics.

At present, 64 journals in printed form are kept up to date. The conventional literature is increasingly supplemented by electronic media. Thus, the university library now offers access to 544 electronic journals (yellow and green dot in the electronic journal library) and various literature databases in the field of sports science. Within the scope of its financial possibilities, the University Library of Regensburg always tries to acquire the literature you need. Please inform us about your acquisition suggestions.

Locations for Sports Literature

  • The reference collection on sports (map of the sub-libraries) is located at the Institute of Sports Science (Sports Centre). There the current stock of scientific literature for study and research as well as the current journals is kept available. The holdings are freely accessible and intended for use in the reading room (reference use).
  • Older or less frequently used literature and works requiring special protection are stored in the central holdings (Magazin) and must be ordered for borrowing via the Regensburg Catalogue.
  • Textbooks: Literature which is of fundamental importance for study and is required for lectures or seminars, for example, is usually placed in the reading room at the beginning of the corresponding sub-discipline of the systematic. In the textbook collection of the Central Library these textbooks are also available in larger quantities. The books in the textbook collection can be borrowed for four weeks. Please inform us if important textbooks are not available or not available in sufficient quantity.
