Access requirements

Currently, the UB offers a limited service.
The distance requirement and a personal limit apply. Wearing a medical mask (or an FFP2 mask) is strongly recommended.
Exception central library: here the mask obligation remains. They are only not required at the workplace.

Room booking system

In all departmental libraries the group workrooms must be reserved in advance. You can make this reservation via our room booking system.

Preorder books and articles

Books as well as articles from local print journals and collective works can still be ordered via web forms:

Web form for books
Web form for essays from books
Web form for articles from journals

  • Articles are scanned and sent internally by e-mail,
  • the books are provided in the libraries and can be picked up during service hours,
  • the users are informed by e-mail about the provision of the literature
  • the provision is made for 5 days, literature not picked up by then will be held back,
  • the UB will try to acquire books that are in high demand as e-books.

Return of media

  • Media from the department libraries can be returned to the respective department library.
  • A basic return of all media (also those of the department libraries) is possible in the central library
