Library Use/Loans

WU staff can use two self-service checkout machines to borrow materials from the Library for Law.

WU students and external library patrons may not borrow books but may use them in the library. A reference collection with the most important reference works for all legal subjects is always available in the reading room for all user groups. For this reason, these reference books cannot be borrowed by scientific staff either.

There are four color scanners which can be used free of charge. You can save the scans as PDF, TIF, or JPG files on an external storage device (USB flash drive, external hard disk drive, memory card).
