University Papers and Art Publications

We offer publications of the Dresden University of Technology, particularly theses, for exchange. Primarily we exchange theses with our partners at home and abroad. But also other institutions can order theses in exchange against the reimursement of shipping costs.

The SLUB is responsible for the special subject collection "Contemporary Art after 1945, Photography, Industrial Design and Commercial Art" (Contemporary Art), as part of the DFG's (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft) special-collections program. Therefore we are in intensive art museums and art institutions all over the world from whom we receive exhibition catalogs and other publications.


We welcome donations to our collections. Please note the following information:

  • We welcome donations which enrich our collections according to our collection profiles. The items have to be in good condition. Multiple copies are only accepted in exceptional cases.

  • Items can only be donated without any claims and they are subject to our right of disposal. Agreements on any conditions (special labeling, closed-access or separate shelving, using restrictions, transport conditions etc.) can only be made in exceptional cases.
