  1. Excellent! Also, those of you at the University of Hamburg will be glad to hear that as of today, the SUB Carl-von-Ossietzky is working hard to acquire as many of the main textbooks required across the curricula of the entire University as quickly as possible. Keep checking there to see if what you are looking for is not available!
