Other specialist information

Medicine - Stock profile

Tübingen University Library acquires literature on medicine in the entire breadth of the subject, e.g. also those on the history of medicine.

In addition, the UB has an extensive and valuable old collection (15th-19th century) of approx. 13,400 monographic titles, 66,500 medical dissertations and 360 journals from the field of medicine. The old holdings (acquisitions up to 1960) can be found under the shelfmark group "I" from "Ia" (General), "Ib" (Anatomy and Physiology) to "Im" (Veterinary Medicine).

In addition, the UB has maintained a special physicians' library with its own holdings since 1966, which is financed by the South Württemberg District Medical Association. This library is used specifically for the information and training of practicing physicians in the region, but is of course also available to other interested parties.


The holdings of the Physicians' Library are listed in their entirety in the Catalog plus. Books of the Doctors' Library are easily recognizable by their shelfmark, which begins with AR.

Thus, by entering "AR*" in a signature query, you can find the entire inventory.
