Romance languages and literary studies

Library resources for Romance languages and literary studies


The Saarland University and State Library acquires important books and journals concerned with all languages and literature of the Romance-speaking world. The collection is particularly well stocked with works on French language and literature.

The books and journals are indexed in the Saarland OPAC online catalogue and the SWB online catalogue (Südwestdeutscher Bibliotheksverbund) and can be searched by author name, keywords, topic or title.

Literature not held in the collections can be located using bibliographic and other reference sources and then requested via the SUBITO delivery service or using the interlibrary loan service. Charges are made for both services.
