You can be issued with books and media from two locations: the Zeughaus and the Bibliotheca Augusta. Books can be found in the open stacks or ordered from the closed stacks and then taken home as long as they are not works printed before 1920, manuscripts or special collections. Only residents of Germany, scholarship holders and guests are permitted to remove borrowed holdings from the premises. Modern printed works and media are issued at the lending desk in the Zeughaus (first floor). Old printed works can only be viewed in the library’s reading rooms. The use of manuscripts, objects from the special collections and painter’s books is subject to special conditions and is limited to the reading room in the Bibliotheca Augusta. Please bear in mind that use of the library is restricted to people with a valid library card, which can be issued at the information desk or the lending desk. Staff at the information desk will be happy to help if you have any further questions.
