Our colleagues from the Referat Information Competence Department and the Information and Learning Centre have collected useful literature for New Brunswick and made it available to you in a blog post. In addition to a short description you will find a link to our catalog where you can note the location of the book and of course have a look at further literature about Braunschweig.

If you have any comments or further ideas, we would be very happy to hear from you in our blog (login via your GITZ account).
