Guide to German Studies information resources in the Monash University Library


The library has one of the major German studies collections in Australia with materials in both the English and German languages.

Remember: The Library has much more than just study books. In addition to print material which is kept in the Matheson library and other branch libraries, the Music and Multimedia Collection has many items relevant to your course (including videos, DVDs, microforms, and music CDs), but also films and music that you can take home and relax with. 

The Library also has a large collection of recreational reading; novels, short stories, magazines, and more.

Material of special interest or fragile nature is kept in our special collections and the Rare Books Collection.

The Library is your portal to the information multiverse. And if the Library does  not have it, then we will find it for you.
