Periodical Database (ZDB)

The ZDB  is the world's biggest database for titles and documents supporting the stocks of serials, i.e. periodicals, newspapers etc. The ZDB comprises more than 1.1 million titles in all languages from 1500 up to the present day and provides evidence of the holdings relating to these titles for approximately 4,300 German libraries. The ZDB does not include any essay titles.


The holdings of all printed periodicals and newspapers of the University and District Library are also documented in the ZBD (region: North-Rhine Westphalia, scribal abbreviation: 1044). You will find our electronic periodicals in the Electronic Periodical Library (EZB).
