The ISS Libraries are now offering a ‘click and collect’ system to give students access to books during the current restrictions. Students are able to pre-order books which are placed in boxes ready for collection.

Last week, members from the Sindelfingen Campus decorated one of the trees on “Grüner Platz” in Sindelfingen, with golden baubles and country flags.
