Registration with the University Library

Students of the university accept the "Regulations of Use for the University Library Greifswald" with their enrollment at the university. So there is no need for a seperate registration. The electronic Student ID-card has a barcode and a user number of the university library on its back side and can be used immediately. For using the self-service machines, but also for access to the user account, a password for the account is needed. There is a button "Request/change password" at the login-website of the user account.
