Subject information for research and teaching: Mathematics


Currently only available in German.

Literature search

All media of the subject Mathematics are located on the 3rd floor of the Central Library as well as in the Science Library. You can find an overview of the library locations here.

The books in the reading rooms are shelved systematically, i.e. according to subjects and within the subjects, according to subject areas and topics. The basis of the arrangement is the classification system which divides the fields of knowledge into main groups and subgroups and is expressed by a letter-number combination (classification number). Classification numbers are used for the books’ shelf numbers, and you can use them to search the catalogue thematically.

All electronic journals licensed for Mathematics can be found in the Electronic Journals Library (EZB).

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.

Bibliometric advice

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.
