Subject Holdings Agricultural Sciences

Agricultural periodicals and monographs are located at the Branch Library Campus Nord. The more recent literature is almost entirely shelved according to the Regensburg Classification Scheme (RVK). Call numbers for Agricultural literature start with the letters ZA to ZE.

The holdings in particular:

Open shelves: The agricultural monographs collection is located primarily on the first floor (1. OG, room 1.18). Further relevant literature can be found at the call numbers beginning with AR (Ecology, Environment), Q (Economics), SA-SP (Mathematics) on the second floor, as well as V (Chemistry) and W (Biology) on the first floor (1. OG, room 1.25).

There is no separate textbook collection at the Branch Library Campus Nord. Textbooks are shelved on open access in accordance with their respective subject matters.

Current issues of periodicals are located on the ground floor (EG, room 0.42). Older volumes can be found also on the ground floor (EG, room 0.21-0.28). Periodicals cannot be checked out.

Closed stacks: The closed stacks primarily contain historical library material not organized in accordance to the Regensburg Classification Scheme. Books from the closed stacks can be paged via the discovery portal Primus. They can either be checked out or used on site if they belong to special collections.


The entirety of the subject holdings can be researched via the library’s discovery portal Primus.

Due to the interdisciplinary character of Agricultural Science, you will find relevant literature at other branch libraries of the university library as well, e.g. at the Erwin-Schrödinger-Zentrum at Adlershof (i.a. in the Geography section) or at the Jacob-und-Wilhelm-Grimm-Zentrum (i.a. in the Economics section).

For more literature please refer to other libraries in Berlin: The Central and Regional Library Berlin (ZLB), the Berlin State Library (SBB), the University Library of the Technical University of Berlin (especially for Horticulture, Food Technology), and the University Library of the Free University of Berlin (especially for Veterinary Medicine).
