Collection Profile

The University Library of Regensburg acquires literature on all areas of law. The main focus is on current study and research literature. Textbooks and reference works ( lexica, encyclopaedias, handbooks, language dictionaries) on all sub-disciplines of law represented at the University Library are acquired, as well as literature on research foci at the University and monographs on important individual topics. At the moment, about 570 printed periodicals are kept up to date. The conventional literature is increasingly supplemented by electronic media. The University Library now offers access to 7320 electronic journals (yellow and green dot in the electronic journal library) and various literature databases in the field of law.

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

Locations for Law Literature

  • The reference holdings on Law are mainly to be found in the Reading Rooms Law I and Law II. Here the current holdings of academic literature for study and research as well as the current periodicals are 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 of the central library and must be ordered for borrowing via the Regensburg Catalogue plus.
  • Textbooks: Literature that is of fundamental importance for study and is needed 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 numbers. 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 quantities.
  • Current parliamentary publications (German page).

Principles of the collection layout

In the Reading Rooms Law I and II (as in all other reading rooms of the Regensburg University Library, including the textbook collection) the books are systematically arranged according to subject areas (Regensburger Verbundklassifikation), i.e. all works on a certain topic are placed next to each other. You can get an overview of the existing holdings by "browsing" the shelves.
