Sorted by language and cultural areas, more than 31,000 books, magazines, CDs and DVDs are available for our course participants.

In addition to the main collections (encyclopaedias, teaching materials and cultural studies), you will find media from the areas of culture, politics, economics and literature of our key countries, as well as some daily newspapers and magazines.

The LSI library is a reference library. Course participants can borrow items for the entire duration of their course.
Should you wish to consult or borrow literature for other reasons, for example for research or investigation purposes, please contact our library team.

The library is open daily. The exact opening hours depend on the class times and are displayed on a notice board. Visitors from out of town are advised to make an appointment in advance. The librarians will be happy to advise you at any time.
