Renovation work: Nadelberg 10
From Monday, August 24th until the end of December 2020, a building in the backyard will be renovated.
The University Religion Library will remain open, however, during the entire construction phase considerable noise can be expected at times. You can find more information here.
Thank you for your understanding.
Together with the holdings at the University Main Library, the University Religion Library provides specialist literature and information on the subject areas of theology, religious studies and Jewish studies. The contents are based on the requirements of teaching and research at the University as well as that of the wider public with an interest in science. The collection primarily contains the most up-to-date literature from the last 20 years.
