The library of the Institute of Applied Mechanics is affiliated to the Technical-Scientific Branch Library (TNZB) Erlangen and thus also integrated into the online user catalogue of the University Library. It contains about 2000 textbooks on important areas of applied mechanics, such as continuum mechanics, fracture mechanics and materials mechanics. Also there is an extensive collection of specialized literature available. The branch library LTM is an inventory library, so no lending is possible.

As current scientific journals, the chair receives the following titles:

  • Archives of Mechanics (since 2003)
  • Boundary Elements – Communications (since 1994 )
  • Engineering Analysis with Boundary Elements (since 1991)
  • Meccanica (since 2012)

In addition these journals are present in bounded form:

  • Archive of Applied Mechanics (1982-2012)
  • Computational Mechanics (2002-2012)
  • Computer Methods in Applied Mechanics and Engineering (2000-2010)
  • Computers & Concrete (2004-2013)
  • International Journal of Fracture (1982-1993)
  • International Journal for Numerical Methods in Engineering (1982-1996) and (2001-2011)
