Multimedia-/Periodicals Reading Room (MZLS)

Since 2007 the Multimedia/Journals reading room has offered combined use of electronic and audiovisual media. The journals racks contain current editions of newspapers and about 1,800 journals from all disciplines. A selection of important 20th century newspapers is available in microform (film rolls and microfiches). These can be used on the corresponding readers or the reader-printer in the reading room.
