  • Professional journals
    Current volumes can be found partly in the Computer Science reference library (see above), partly in the Central Library in the flap cabinets, systematically arranged by subject area. The signatures of the journals are given on the flaps (Z + consecutive number). Bound volumes can be found in the basement of the Central Library, sorted by "Z number".
