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.

Textbook collection, literature research & reference management – First Aid at the WU Library

Do you need to know how to borrow books and where the textbook collection is located? Are you writing your thesis and need some tips for your research? We have the right advice for first-time as well as advanced library users:

  • Visit us at the Library Information (Central Library on level 2) if you have questions about using the library or are looking for books and journals.

  • Do you want to learn about the basics of literature research, or would you like to get to know one of the reference management programmes? Then you are welcome to visit one of our Library Workshops.

  • If you have more in-depth questions about literature research for your thesis or about reference management, we can talk about it during a Research Consultation – by phone, by email or in a personal appointment (virtual or in person).

  • If you prefer to get information spontaneously and without an appointment, you can take a seat at the search_bar every Tuesday and Thursday.

  • Anytime and anywhere, you can access the interactive eLearning Fit4Research. Here you will find information on orientation in the Central Library, in-depth information on the library catalogue, the databases or Google Scholar.
