Lending information


The online catalogue can be used for research purposes without prior formal registration. 
If you wish to take books or other media home or to a reading room on  loan, or if you wish to obtain external access to licensed databases and electronic journals you need a  reader pass with password.

Reader Pass, Password

For ordering books and other media for consultation in a reading room or for home lending you need a reader pass.

When your reader pass is issued by the Registration Office your birth date is entered as default password:
date of birth, month of birth and year of birth (Example: date of birth 19/02/1970 - password: 19021970). You can change the default password yourself in the Online-Catalogue. For this purpose you have to register yourself first, inputting your user number and the default password.
If you forgot your chosen password, we will reset it to your date of birth.
To request that, please consult the the local lending office personally and take your library card

If you have any difficulties with your reader pass or your password, kindly contact
