Facts & Figures

With approximately 79,000 books and magazines, a growing range of electronic journals and e-books, the main task of our library is supplying the HafenCity University with literature and information. It is also open to all citizens of the Hamburg region.

The library took over the holdings of the faculties of architecture, civil engineering, geomatics and urban planning of the respective predecessor institutions. It has expanded the collection and supplemented it by the collections of metropolitan development, urban design and sustainable construction.

All books are freely accessible and most of them may be borrowed. All stocks can be looked through and found via the online catalogue. The database listing complements the searching. There are also the DIN standards (industrial norms) available. Not locally available literature can be procured via interlibrary loan.

By using the publication server OPuS the library promotes electronic publishing at the university and provides a central access point of electronic university publications of the HCU.
