General

History of the library

The library of the IZW is based on the stock of the library of the Research Station for Vertebrate Research (FWF). The stock of this library with mainly pathological, veterinary and parasitological literature required a new acquisition with the foundation of the IZW (1992) and the restructuring of the institute according to the new thematic issues. Thus, for example, ecology has become increasingly important. With the steadily growing number of sub-disciplines, the contents of the books also became more versatile. New working methods in molecular biology, statistics or new imaging methods changed the stock.
A new classification for the shelving of the books and a thesaurus for subject indexing of the books in the online catalogue LARS were developed.

Collection areas

Evolutionary genetics, evolutionary ecology, nutritional physiology, ecophysiology, ethology, wildlife diseases, reproduction biology, veterinary medicine, parasitology, zoology

Stock

19.200 books and periodical volumes, approximately 546 non-book materials (e.g. maps, video cassettes, CD-ROMs) and 63 current periodicals print or/and online (as of March 1st, 2021).

Indexing

The monographic stock is catalogued in the online-catalogue "LARS II" or in the card index (literature before 1990).

The current journals are catalogued in the online-catalogue "LARS II". The journals of the IZW library are recorded in a journal list (available also on the intranet). The journals are listed in the German Union Catalogue of Serials (ZDB) https://zdb-katalog.de
