Wittelsbacherplatz Departmental Library


In the departmental library, you will find specialist literature on protestant theology, pedagogy, psychology, political and social studies and special needs education. The entire departmental library collection can be searched via the catalogue.

The shelf marks of these items start with "500/".

New: Security gate and self-checkout machine

The departmental library is now equipped with a security gate, so the cloakroom regulations have been changed in line with the Main Library. Further information.

In addition, two self-service machines (in the reading room on the 2nd floor and the counter area) are now available for borrowing and returning books!

Loan facilities

  • Most of the items in the departmental library can be borrowed. Please take the books from the shelves yourself. You can borrow the items yourself at our self-service machine or go to the departmental library's counter.
  • The loan periods correspond to those of the Main Library.
  • You can renew items yourself via your user account.
  • More information on borrowing.
  • Special conditions apply for borrowing tests.

A valid user card from the University Library or a student ID valid for the current semester is required for borrowing items.

Returning borrowed items

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 post to: Teilbibliothek Wittelsbacherplatz, Wittelsbacherplatz 1, 97074 Würzburg. The date of receipt of the mail is decisive for the timely return.
