SLUB App for iPhone and Android

SLUB's new catalog app lets you search over 70 million printed and digital books, journals and articles using your iPhone or Android device. Drill down your search with powerful faceting so you find what you are really looking for. Order, reserve and renew books or add them to your watch list. Find information about library locations and opening hours.

The catalog app is optimized for quick literature searches and may, at this stage, deliver different search results than the website catalog. Please use the catalog on the website for comprehensive searches.

SLUB's catalog app will be continuously improved.
