The Ruhr West University Library currently holds more than 32,000 books, 60,000 electronic media and about 170 journal subscriptions on our two campuses. It has been designed as a place for students and teachers to concentrate on their studies and feel comfortable.
Our young and dynamic team of librarians is constantly coming up with new ideas on how to make library services even more effective and user-friendly. For instance, e-book titles are now accessible not only through the traditional catalogue but also by simply scanning the QR Code on the shelf with your smartphone. Users are welcome to take their bags and some food (fruit, candy etc.) into the library to keep their brains fuelled. And unlike the libraries of many other German universities, the Ruhr West library is also open on weekends.
