English, Germanic and Romance Language & Literatures

Departmental Library for English, Germanic and Romance Language & Literatures (TB AGR)



In the departmental library, you will find specialist literature on English,  German and Romance studies and on Comparative Indo-Germanic Linguistics . The entire departmental library collection can be searched via the catalogue.

The shelf marks of these items start with "450/“.

  • The media of the departmental library can be borrowed regularly. Please take the books out of the shelves yourself. We book the media at the service desk.
  • The loan periods are the same as at the main library.
  • Extending the loan period can be done via your user account.
  • Detailed information about the lending services.

Media marked with a red location mark, such as journals, cannot be borrowed. This also applies to holdings that are particularly worthy of protection for conservation reasons.
A valid library card or student ID for the current semester is required for borrowing materials.

Return of borrowed media

Books borrowed from the departmental library can be returned to the departmental library or to the return terminals in the Main Library. The two terminals on the outside of the Main Library building (about 50 meters to the right of the entrance in the direction of the Mensa) are also available outside opening hours.

Please send returns by mail as a package to: Teilbibliothek AGR, Philosophiegebäude, Am Hubland, 97074 Würzburg. The date of receipt of the mail is decisive for the timely return.

A total of 245 workstations - more than half of them with power supply - are available.


Access to specialist databases for literature searches, Internet access, Wi-Fi, multifunctional copiers, Book2net scanning station


Jackets, bags (including laptop bags) and food may not be taken into the departmental library. Lockers are available to store your belongings. Please bring your own padlock (shackle thickness 6–7 mm) and remember to empty your locker in the evening. Permanent lockers are also available in the departmental library.

Permanent lockers

The permanent lockers are located in front of the library entrance. Keys for permanent lockers can be reserved via the University Library catalogue. The lockers can be used for up to three months. If nobody else has reserved a permanent locker, you can keep the locker for another three months. This can only be extended once. Lockers are only available to students of the University of Würzburg. You will need a padlock (shackle thickness 6-7 mm).

To reserve a key via the University Library catalogue, proceed as follows:

    Open the catalogue and log in.

    Change the departmental library (under "Limit search", "Current branch") to "TB Anglistik-Germanistik-Romanistik"

    Search Title(s) for "Dauerschliessfach".


Study desks accessible for wheelchair users can be found on the first floor and basement level of the library. The connection between the two floors is not wheelchair accessible (winding staircase). However, there is a separate entrance to the basement; please contact the library staff if you need assistance.
