The University Library


Summer closure (change of system)

The library will be closed from 27 July to 11 September 2020. During this time, we will be working on the new library catalogue for you. Please return all borrowed media between 14 September and 30 October 2020. You can borrow them again immediately in our new system. We apologize for this inconvenience.

 Media can be returned via the return box in the university foyer during the university's opening hours

Library and usage regulations (in German)

We are pleased to offer you the following additional services:

  • Self-service borrowing: you can take out music and books without assistance via the self-service borrowing stations.
  • Scanner: material can be safely scanned onto storage media free of charge.
  • Box for the return of media: borrowed media can be returned outside opening hours by placing in the box on level 0 – near the porter's lodge / opposite the  Studiobühne.
  • Bibliobags (library bags) are transparent carrier bags, which are available free of charge and can be taken into all the library rooms. They need not be returned, and are thus also a practical everyday accessory.
