The library of HS Gesundheit
The library of Hochschule für Gesundheit is a classical university library for academic literature in the context of studies, teaching and research. A special feature of the library is its focus on the fields of health care and health sciences.
Therefore it is also a scientific specialist library. It collects and provides printed and electronic literature relevant to health sciences. The aim of the service is to provide students, teachers and researchers at hsg and their environment with the resources and sources of information needed in the various phases of study, teaching and research in the context of health sciences.
This spectrum includes medical and therapeutic specialist and research literature, as well as sources on the culture, sociology, psychology and pedagogy of health, health care, public health and health economics, medical technology, digital health care, and telemedicine, health and the individual, community health care and the social and spatial environment, health and work, and on social, professional, organisational and scientific key competencies.
The library would like to encourage graduates to continue to make use of scientific sources in their professional and scientific practice even after they have completed their studies at hsg.
The library also supplies partners on the Bochum Gesundheitscampus and is open to cooperative projects with educational institutions or health care institutions.
People from the city and region with an interest in the fields of science and health care may also make use the library's offerings.
