The University Library`s facilities are closed on public holidays.

The Departmental Library has 256 user workstations with LAN and Wifi connections. 20 of these workstations are equipped with PCs and there are 12 individual carrels and 3 group carrels for up to 6 persons. Furthermore, there are 13 OPAC PCs that can be used for catalogue searches.

The workplaces in the departmental library are primarily available to students and employees in the humanities and theology.

The literature is displayed on open shelves (for self-service). A large proportion of the media can be lend out, the rest can only be used in the library (non-circulation collection).

Course Reserved Collection

Users can make copies of resources that are intended for library use only at one of the scanners/photocopiers that are located on each floor.

Books can be lend out at the service desk or the self-service terminals using the Library card or Student ID Card.
