Tips for quick search

The “quick search” lets you search your library's catalogue by author, title, subject or other keywords. To do a basic search, enter one or more search terms. You can combine several keywords. If you do not know the exact term you want to search for, you can enter part of a word followed or preceded by a wildcard. The wildcard symbol "*" can stand for any number of characters (e.g. “cultural*” results in “cultural policy”, “cultural heritage” etc.)

Hit display

The Status field shows whether a medium is available or already borrowed.
Please note that the publications with the loan type Präsenzbestand can only be used in the reading room and can not be borrowed outside the library.
