Staatswissenschaftliches Seminar
The Library of Economics

The Staatswissenschaftliche Seminar is the departmental library of economics.

We offer a large reading room with 165 workspaces for concentrated work as well as two group study rooms for up to six people each.

Here you will find subject- and study-related books and journals on economics and business administration, current textbooks, as well as a large collection of bachelor's, master's, and doctoral theses from our department.

Basically, we are a reference library, i.e. you can only work with the books on-site. However, there are special arrangements for borrowing.
