New Digital Collections

The consortium of Saxon university libraries supported the e-book-collection on the Oxford-Handbooks platform. The film portal AVA Library with an extensive collection of arthouse films was also newly licensed.

The library offers even more databases - outside the university network you have to login using your University-ID: 

ProQuest - Sociology and Psychology Databases and Social Science Ebook Collection 

JSTOR Arts & Sciences Collection - titles across performing, and visual arts, including all titles in the music collection



The library provides literature and information for study, research and teaching, with the focus on Dance Studies. Non-members of the university may also use it as a reference library on application. The collection has been built up since 1995 in the fields of dance, theatre and music studies. The library contains approx. 8000 items, a quarter of which are audio-visual media, above all dance videos. Specialist magazines about dance and theatre are also available in the collection.

The book collection is available in the form of an open access library. We also offer workstations where CDs, DVDs and videos can be played. For using library resources please abide the Library Regulations.
