Library floor plan (PDF, 395 KB)


Journals (bound volumes and current issues) can be found in the periodicals area. They are shelved in alphabetical order by title.


Our monographs are organised in 19 different subject areas.

Outline of subject categories

Subject categories

  • can be distinguished by different coloured labels on the spine and at the shelves
  • are indicated by their abbreviations on the labels

Within the subject categories, there are different subject groups and within these groups the books are organised in alphabetical order by author or title.

Using the electronic version of the local classification scheme an online subject search is possible. The subject groups can be reached via the links in the outline above.

Choose a group on the subject categories site and click the link (e.g. ALL 60). It will direct you to our Primo Knowledge Portal and show all books related to this group.
