The University Library supports primarily students and staff of the Bauhaus University with literature and information service according to the study and research needs of its four faculties Architecture and Urbanism, Civil Engineering, Design and Media. In addition to the book collection, there is a special focus on digital media like e-books, e-journals and databases. Furthermore, the library contains historical collections, special collections and donations.
The main part of the historical collection are books and journals from the predecessor institutions of the Bauhaus University since 1860. These collections are listed in our Library catalogue (OPAC). The books are indexed by the inventory stamps of the different institutions and can be searched by provenance. With support of the Deutschen Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG), parts of these old collections have been digitized and are now accessible through the project site as well as through the Deutsche Digitale Bibliothek.
