Reading rooms closed from 14th of April 2020 - Checkout of items possible with scheduled appointments

By order of the Bavarian State Ministry of Science and Arts the university library is closed to the public from the 14th of March. These measures were taken to protect our users as well as our staff and to slow the spread of the coronavirus.

All of our online-services are still available to you. Please use our E-Books, E-Journals and databases. If you have any questions, please contact the university library anytime via phone, E-Mail or in the chat.

Since the 14th of April it is possible to order printed media in the Bamberg Catalogue and schedule an appointment for pickup at a branch library. The return boxes outside of branch library 3 and 4 and outside ERBA-library are open. You can also return items by mail as a parcel.

We apologise for any inconveniences during these exceptional circumstances. Stay safe and take care!

* Staffed hours

Particularly in the evenings and on weekends, we employ back staff and therefore, cannot always provide all services at those times. During regular staffed hours, our trained library personnel will be happy to assist you.
