Unfortunately we are forced to change our lending system for the time being. You need to fill out forms to lend books. Please bring your UCCard and proof of address to fill out a registration form. Thank you!


Circulation of materials

To borrow materials readers need a UCCard or a library card from the USB.

  • Up to ten books at a time can be borrowed for two weeks. They can be renewed at the information desk. Books that were ordered by another reader cannot be renewed. Books checked out by another reader can be reserved.
  • Journals, "Sonderdrucke", and sources can be used in the Reading Room only.
  • Please contact the librarian for Microfilms, CD-Roms, and DVDs.
  • Please contact the students assistants of the AGuF for borrowing books marked "AGuF".
  • Please contact the librarian for materials marked "Schrank".

Please contact the librarian or student assistants if you have any questions.
