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.
