Libraries are extensive repositories of knowledge and preserve rare pieces of jewels in their archives. On October 24, 2018, the nationwide “Day of Libraries” will draw attention to their importance as a cultural and educational institution. For many students at the University of Freiburg, the specialized libraries are an important place for learning and exchanging ideas alongside the University library. Sonja Seidel presents five of them.
