Extensions & Reminders

You can renew your loaned books yourself in your user account during the entire digital summer semester.  Therefore, please check in your user account of the library whether you have media with expired loan periods and renew them in time. In this way you can prevent reminder fees from being charged in the near future.

To log in, please enter the 10-digit number above or below the barcode in your user account. Your password is usually your date of birth in 6-digit form without points (DDMMYYY).

 If there is a reservation on your books, unfortunately these cannot be extended and must be returned in time. For a contactless return of media please use our return box in front of the library entrance.

 Do you have reminder fees? Please transfer them preferably to our bank account.


Library visit

Due to the Corona crisis, the use of the library on campus is limited. Currently we can offer 17 workplaces. In order to enable the tracing of chains of infection, you are required to fill out a form with your contact information when using a workplace. Further media can be ordered or reserved for loan as usual via our library catalogue.

 Please note that in order to protect your fellow students as well as the library staff, you must comply with the actual hygiene and clearance conditions. The most important measures continue to be maintaining a safe distance of 1.5 - 2 m from other people and an individual hand hygiene. In addition, we currently have an admission limit of 20 visitors at the same time. For this purpose it is mandatory to take a library basket (max. 20 available) with you. You will find this in our entrance area.

 We kindly ask you to wear a mask in our library.
