All online services are available without restrictions. We recommend that all members and students of the university primarily use our wide range of e-books, e-journals and databases.
In the departmental library you will find the borrowable media of the law textbook collection as well as a non-lending reference collection of special legal literature.
The media of the textbook collection can be identified by the call number "80/", the media of the law reference collection by the call number "250/".
Against the background of the spread of the coronavirus, Würzburg University Library has implemented the specifications of the Bavarian State Ministry of Science and Art to restrict public access and service offerings. In the context of the current exceptional situation, we ask for your understanding for these measures.
