Profile

The HHL Library supports teaching and research at HHL with reliable information services focusing on business and economics. The library stock comprises about 26,800 textbooks and monographs on business and economics. The HHL Library subscribes to more than 120 international journals and newspapers and offers about 40 licensed databases covering more than 60,000 sources. Several thousands of e-books are accessible online.

The  library resources are available to HHL students and academic staff 24/7. That is, books can be read and borrowed even late at night or at weekends. Non-stop access to online resources is provided within the HHL network via the Library’s page on the intranet of HHL, eCampus. 

In January 2015, the HHL Library was named after Dr. Tessen and Dorothee von Heydebreck. With the new name HHL shows its acknowledgement of the great support the couple has been giving to HHL for many years. Dr. Tessen von Heydebreck is the Chairman of HHL's Supervisory Board.

Services

A team of qualified and committed librarians support library users in their search for information. They regularly offer library tours and database introduction sessions in English and German. The database tutorials are offered on campus and online (via WeBex). They can also be arranged on individual request.

The HHL Library is part of the international interlibrary loan network and provides also books from libraries in other regions. All members of the HHL community may make use of the literature management program Citavi licensed by HHL. For students who are writing their master thesis the library offers special services (longer lending periods, free interlibrary loans et. al.). 

The HHL Library supports doctoral students who wish to publish their thesis online. The Library cooperates with the regional server Qucosa maintained by the Saxon State and University Library Dresden.

The Library maintains an information blog in HHL's intranet. Thus it keeps the members of the HHL community informed about new services and latest library news.
