Older literature published up to the year 2000 must be ordered via the library catalogue from the stacks in Westring. This literature will then be available in Breiten Weg on the next working day after 2pm.

Interested persons without a Kiel University library card are welcome to use the inventory on site. The circulation desk of the Medical Department is available to all users of the University Library for borrowing and returning media.

Technical Equipment

The building is equipped with access to the CAU's wireless network via Wi-Fi, so that the students can use their own laptops for learning in the building. The PC area is equipped with 18 computer workstations, which provide Internet access to all electronically-available media; it also serves as a training room, in which IT training related to the subject of medicine is offered for the UKSH (e.g. for PubMed and EndNote). You can use a coin-operated copier and printer from Ricoh in the building. There is also a self-service terminal for validating the CAU Card in the building.

Media Room

With our Media Room, we would like to support you with the preparation of doctoral theses, publications and presentations for research and teaching.

There are Microsoft Office programmes installed on the PC, as well as other software such as SPSS, SigmaPlot, Adobe Photoshop, Corel Draw, Citavi and EndNote. This software is to help you with further scientific processing of your results, as well as with presentation/layout. You can use it after prior registration.
