HTWK Leipzig’s new university library, completed in 2009, offers students 'a study environment that many a prestigious university can only dream about', as the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, one of Germany's most important national newspapers, stated in a recent article. And indeed, with its award-winning architecture, state-of-the art facilities, spacious reading rooms and nearly 10,000 meters of shelf space packed with specialised literature, the library lives up to Leipzig’s reputation as a city of books.
The Library is home to nearly 300,000 books, journals and audiovisual items. Its website serves as the primary source of electronic information, offering students and staff 24-hour access to the WebOPAC online catalogue, German and international databases, more than 8,000 full-text journals, as well as theses, tutorials and much more. On four floors, facilities include 52 computer terminals, laptop facilities and a wireless network, presentation and group discussion rooms, quiet study areas and 14 carrels reserved for individual study.
