Library Holdings and Acquisitions

The University and State Library of Saxony-Anhalt maintains a historically grown print collection, which generally covers the full breadth of jurisprudence and includes an extensive stock of legal history. The current collection foci are aligned with the prevailing profile of university teaching, and the aim is to continually expand access to electronic content.

Finding and Using

The holdings of literature relating to law are primarily located in the Branch Library Law (Ha 11) and have already been fully electronically indexed since 1991.

Individual Classification

The books of the branch library are shelved according to an individual classification system.

Call Numbers

The call number of each title in the holdings, which are for the most part (exempt from a few exeptions) freely borrowable, and can be researched by using Ha:Lit.

Image Catalogues

For researching literature published up to 1990, our image catalogues are available as a supplementary research system; the historical holdings partly follow a specific classification including Roman call numbers (I - XXX).
