Library – making knowledge accessible

Studierende recherchieren an einem Tisch in der Bibliothek der FH Potsdam

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