Most items are retrievable via the Primus Gateway.

However, a minor part of the older literature (pre 1908 or theses until 1974) may not yet be included in Primus. Please consult the following catalogues to fill this gap. You find them next to our information desk on the ground floor of the Grimm-Zentrum, behind the wooden columns. There you can also ask one of our librarians for help.
