The institutional repository provides students and teachers of the university with a modern platform for the publication of scientific and artistic work. Digital provision not only allows rapid, uncomplicated access around the clock, but also promotes the professional exchange within the respective community and the transfer to the interested public.

In terms of content, the collection policy at the university library aims to represent the entire spectrum of subjects represented at the university. In addition to the digital publications mentioned, digitized documents from the various collections of the library are also available here.

Corresponding to the pan-European socio-political intentions for free access to knowledge (see for instance Horizon 2020; Berlin Declaration) it is our concern to provide the bulk of the resources through Open Access.

An overview of the different document and publication types available in the repository is provided by the → index search.
