Against the background of the spread of the coronavirus, the University Library of Würzburg has implemented the specification of the Bavarian State Ministry of Science and Art. This measure is intended to protect users and staff and to slow down the spread of the coronavirus. We ask for your understanding for these measures in view of the current exceptional situation.

Services of the departmental library during the Corona Pandemic

Borrowing in the departmental library possible from 22.4.2020 - reservation required
Collection of ordered books: Mon - Fri from 10:00 - 14:00

Untill further notice, the departmental library must remain closed to the public. However, members of the university, and thus of course students, will be able to borrow books from 22 April onwards!

The desired books must be ordered in advance by mail. They can be picked up the next day (Mon - Fri). If a book is currently not available, you will of course be informed in advance by e-mail. We are also looking into the possibility of making the book available to you in an alternative way - e.g. by purchasing another copy.

When ordering, please indicate your UB user number (it starts with 079... and is printed on your student card or JMU-Card) as well as author and title and, if possible, the shelf mark of the desired books (starting with 800/...).

Books can be picked up from Monday to Friday from 10:00 - 14:00. During this time the main entrance of the building is open for access to the partial library only. The door to the library is open during the book distribution hours. The collection of ordered books takes place directly in the entrance area of the library, so that you can easily see whether the issue area is currently free or occupied. Please pay attention to the distance markings.

In order to speed up the book issue, there are already filled out loan slips in the books. The borrowing slips only need to be signed and placed in the box provided. The loan period is 14 days.

There is also a box for returning books in the entrance area of the departmental library. Please return only books that you have borrowed from the departmental library. Unfortunately the return of books from the Main Library exceeds the available transport capacities. Please return books from the Main Library to the library as well. The Main Library's book return box is open around the clock.

Please send your book orders by mail to the departmental library.
When ordering, please indicate your user number as well as author, title and signature for the books you wish to order.

Note for lecturers:

The collection and return of books ordered by lecturers is carried out as previously communicated by the library administration.

E-Books first - make suggestions:

Please use our acquisition suggestion form for e-books! In this way a contactless literature supply is possible, we therefore currently prefer this variant and will consider your suggestions favourably.

Further information on the current situation

The departmental library is a reference library, which means that items can usually only be used on site. All lending conditions (weekend and overnight loans) are summarised on a separate page.

More information on further lending conditions can be found in the Guidelines on the use of departmental libraries (PDF, 124 KB). You will find a large collection of study-relevant literature available for loan in the Hubland Main Library.

A total of 158 study desks are available, including 14 computer workstations with Internet access and 2 research PCs (catalogue).


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


Please bring your own padlock if you would like to use one of the building’s many lockers. The lockers must be emptied in the evening. A limited number of permanent lockers are also available. If you would like to borrow items or have any questions, please contact the information desk.
