Subject information for research and teaching: Art
Currently only available in German.
Research information for researchers
All media on the subject Art are located in the Central Library.
The openly accessible holdings on the 2nd floor are arranged according to the classification system for Art, which divides the fields of knowledge into main groups and subgroups and is expressed by a letter-number combination (classification number).
The classification system can also be used to browse our search portal thematically.
Open access databases on the web and all databases licensed by ULB can be found in our Database Information System (DBIS).

The Gesamtkatalog der Düsseldorfer Kulturinstitute (GDK) lists the book holdings of other libraries in Düsseldorf (including the library of the Kunstakademie). A search in the GDK can make sense if you have not found what you are looking for at the ULB.
Selecting and ordering literature
You’re welcome to submit literature requests and acquisition suggestions to the responsible subject librarian, either informally via email or by using our acquisition proposal form.
We can set up quick reference collections for literature required on a daily basis as required by Chairs after consultation with their respective subject librarian. Up to 500 items of research literature can be included in a quick reference collection. Please contact your responsible subject librarian to set up a quick reference collection or order books for a collection.
Various bibliometric indicators can be used to evaluate, compare or rank the significance of scientific publications. Please contact us for more information on the h-index or impact factor. The subject librarians can gladly advise on individual bibliometric aspects.
Digital and information literacy
The ULB supports the advancement of digital literacy and information skills with subject-specific in-person teaching and digital offers. We can gladly attend your events and give an introduction to subject-specific information research.
