Subject information for research and teaching: Philosophy


Currently only available in German.

Research information for researchers

ULB Düsseldorf is made up of the Central Library and several branch libraries. You can find an overview here.

Media on the subject Philosophy is located in the Humanities Library PhilBib 2. Please request “Closed stack” media via the library catalogue.

The classification system, which divides the fields of knowledge into main groups and subgroups and is expressed by a letter-number combination (classification number), can also be used to browse our search portal thematically. Holdings in openly accessible areas are shelved according to this classification system. This means that thematically related media are located next to each other. Please note that in the philosophy collection, some volumes still temporarily bear shelfmarks from the classification system of the former Verbundbibliothek Geisteswissenschaften.

Die für die Philosophie zentralen, durch die ULB Düsseldorf lizenzierten Datenbanken sind Philosopher's Index with Full Text und PhilPapers. Sie finden diese sowie zahlreiche weitere Datenbanken über DBIS.

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.
