Library – Making knowledge accessible
As the central institution of the University of Applied Sciences Potsdam, the library has been making knowledge available to the public for over 30 years – for students, lecturers, researchers, university guests and interested citizens. We also ensure the analogue and digital supply of media and information to all departments of the university.
