About our library

Library holdings

In accordance with its mission, the university library acquires and collects media, particularly for the undergraduate and graduate programmes run by the departments of the university, at its three locations. Accordingly, you will find literature and information relating to ...

  • Business management and health economics,
  • Social work, nursing science and pedagogy, and
  • Business management and economics focusing on East and Southeast Asia.

Our print holdings, with more than 110,000 items, are continually updated.
In addition to books, we offer numerous journals in printed and electronic form, newspapers, access to important online databases as well as a continually growing collection of e-books.

Access to our material

The material in our collections is generally open to the public and arranged according to subject area. This gives you the possibility to browse for books directly at the shelves in addition to searching for literature using our online library catalogue (OPAC).https://opac.hs-lu.de/alipac/
