THWS Library

The THWS Library welcomes you with its branches in Würzburg and in Schweinfurt serving study purposes as well as teaching and research purposes. The Library provides literature to members of our University and is the first port of call for literature research. Additionally, as an academic library, it is also open to the public.

Plenty of e-books and e-journals are available via the THWS Library – most of them are included in the online catalogue. Please enter the catalogue search via your respective study location.
