Library Services

All library branches (Central Library, Library for Law, Library for Social Sciences) can be accessed without a seat reservation and the libraries are open throughout the day (without the break at lunchtime).

Please note the regulations on 2,5-G as well as the FFP2 masks in the libraries.

Pre-ordering and collection of books from the Central Library via the lending service is still available.
