Our second Long Night of the studys was a huge success. Many students came to the library to learn together, to chat, to play games and to strengthen themselves with beverages and snacks. Alltogether:
- 17 trays of homemade cakes and snacks have been eaten,
- 40 liters of ice tea, 26 liters of coffee and 10 liters of tea have been drunken.
Every desk was occupied and the students were learning until late in the night.
We are thanking all participants for a wonderful night.

Prospectively limited access to journals of the Elsevier publishing house from 2018 on
The negotiations of German research institutions and universities with the Elsevier publishing house remained unsuccessful. The aim was to gain a nationwide licence agreement in the context of the DEAL-project. It may therefore be assumed that the access to current issues of Elsevier journals will be limited from 2018 on. For further information, please see our website .
