Open Stack Collections Including Journals and Newspapers

Open Stacks

Books from the open stacks are freely accessible at the shelves and can be borrowed for the most part. Please borrow them from the self-issue machines. The textbook collection is part of the open stacks. The lending of textbooks is reserved exclusively for HU members.


Journals cannot be borrowed (reference collection). In the Grimm-Zentrum, current issues can be found in the journal section in the open stacks on the 1st floor. Older issues are bound and placed on the second floor.

Journals that are stored in the closed stacks must be ordered. Please contact the information desk at the respective branch library.

Please note: Many journal articles are not listed in Primus and must be researched via subject databases. The staff at the library information desk will be happy to help you.


Print editions of newspapers are kept for three months and can only be viewed on site at the Grimm-Zentrum. Online archives of various daily and weekly newspapers are accessible via our databases.
