Interim Bergstraße / Open Science Lab Library

Our branch library with legal literature (formerly on Bergstraße) is located at Zellescher Weg 25. This interim location is in building Z21 on the campus grounds of the TU Dresden.

At the new location, you can borrow most of the main holdings, which are systematically arranged in open access areas, as well as the holdings in our separately sorted textbook collection for 28 calendar days.

The loose-leaf editions, journals and commentaries cannot be borrowed. These materials count as reference literature and can only be used in the library.

This branch library also houses the SLUB Open Science Lab.

Study spaces

With over 300 study spaces and a small SLUB forum, this branch library offers excellent learning conditions for your studies. If you would like to work in groups, our bookable group working rooms and study spaces in non-bookable rooms will be available on the 1st floor soon.

If you want to relax or meet others casually, you are welcome to use the breakroom. It has tables, chairs and a vending machine for snacks and drinks.

Our location also has a parent-child workroom with a PC workstation.


10 PC workstations and access to the campus-wide WiFi enable you to research online and use our e-resources.

Furthermore, a Bookeye 5 V3 book scanner/colour inspection scanner (up to A3 format) can be used to scan books and other materials free of charge. You can transfer your scanned documents to your own USB stick or with the "Scan2Mobile" app. In addition, we offer scan tents at all locations, which can also be used free of charge. 

You can also borrow various technical equipment for on-site use at the counter at the location.
All you need is your SLUB card.
