Registration and library card

Registration

You are able to use the library as a student as soon as you are attending 10th grade.

The use of the University Library is free

To borrow books and have full access to all electronic media in the library, you will need a library card, which you can apply online for and pick it up in one of our branch libraries. Please, bring along any form of identification (ID, driving license) for the pick-up.

The library card

You will receive a library card by presenting a valid ID at the circulation desk.

The number below the barcode is your library number. You will need this number to order books in the Bamberg catalogue. The related password consists of the first four digits of your birthday. So if your birthday were the 1st July, this is your password: 0107. 

Attention: You are advised to change your password for security reasons after your first signup to the Bamberg catalogue.
