Short Introduction

Collection profile

The University Library of Regensburg acquires literature on all branches of mathematics. The main focus is on current study and research literature. Textbooks and reference works ( lexica, encyclopaedias, handbooks, language dictionaries) on all sub-disciplines of mathematics represented in the University Library are acquired, as well as literature on research foci at the University and monographs on important individual topics. The conventional literature is increasingly supplemented by electronic media. In the field of mathematics, the University Library now offers access to over 1,300 electronic journals (yellow and green dot in the Electronic Journals Library EZB) and various literature databases in the field of mathematics.

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 Mathematics Literature

  • The reference collection on mathematics is mainly located in the mathematics sublibrary. 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 Regensburger 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 4 weeks. Please inform us if important textbooks are not available or not available in sufficient quantities.
