University Library book bazaar on 10 and 11 April 2024

Browse through the book bazaar!

The library is parting with older, no longer needed literature from almost all departments.

The prices are 1.00 Euro for paperbacks and 2.00 Euro for bound volumes. If you buy 5 books, you will receive one book as a bonus.

The proceeds of the book bazaar will be used for the acquisition of new information media.

Please note that the book bazaar is aimed at members of the university and interested members of the public, not at resellers. The sale is limited to a maximum of 50 volumes per person.

Only cash payment is possible at the book bazaar.

You will find the bazaar on 10 and 11 April 2024 from 09:00 to 13:00 in the entrance area of the library (room BI1.111, opposite the return machine).

"Writing Days" in the University Library from 4 to 7 March 2024

From Monday, 4 March to Thursday, 7 March, from 9:15 to 17:00, the "Writing Days" will take place for the second time. The event is organised by the Competence Centre for Writing and the University Library, together with other institutions of the university.

Students and doctoral candidates from all faculties are invited to spend four days in the library working intensively on their writing projects. They will be supported with advice on writing and literature searches as well as short workshops. Joint exercise breaks with yoga or brain breaks offer a pleasant interruption and the conversation during the coffee break in building Q0.101 may motivate you with new writing impulses.

Registration is possible from 5 February via the library's booking system for training courses. If you don't have time on all days, you can also register for certain days only. Of course, we are also happy for you to register for the entire period, in which case please complete the registration form for each day of the event.

You can find information on the programme and important information on the procedure on the pages of the Competence Centre for Writing.

The "Writing Days" are organised by the Competence Centre for Writing and the University Library, together with other institutions of the University, such as ProLernen, the Centre for Spelling Competence, the Graduate Centre of the Faculty of Arts and Humanities and University Sports.
