Borrowing books and research at the library are bound to the opening hours of the Studenservicedesk:

Monday – Friday: 9AM – 4PM

Borrowing and returning books during those hours are possible. Personal consulting services are only available after making an appointment with the following email address: library.k

Furthermore there are six solo workingstations, three of those are equipped with an computer (first come first serve, no reservation).

Please use the cart function to reserve and borrow books, so that we can prepare them. You then only will have to collect the requested books:

  1. Search literature via the Macromedia Catalog and open selected media via the “Abrufen der Katalogposition”-button.
  2. A new browser window will open (which by the way is the traditional OPAC). In this window click on “Add to your cart”. (If you started your research in the OPAC, ignore step 1).
  3. Click “cart” in the main navigation.
  4. Click “sent” to mail your reservation of books to your local library.
