Our Library is a specialist academic library. It is publicly accessible and collects information carriers in the fields of economic, legal, social and cultural sciences. You can take the required documents from the shelves and work with them at a workstation or borrow them. The use of the Library and borrowing are free of charge.
Besides academic documents, there is also fiction
Besides scientific documents and information sources for teaching, research and degree courses, the HSG Library also holds a well-endowed department with works on linguistics and literary criticism, a collection of books of fiction, audiobooks, newspapers and magazines of general content, and even a small but sophisticated collection of comics for any readers who are interested.
"Das andere Buch an der Uni"
Ever since 2002, the Library has organised two readings a year in a series entitled “Das andere Buch an der Uni”, to which everyone interested is cordially invited. Many memorable highlights include readings and lively discussions with Peter Stamm, Alex Capus, Lukas Hartmann and Rolf Dobelli.
Our regular opening hours: Mondays to Fridays from 8 a.m. to 11 p.m., and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.
