The University Library is a generally accessible service facility for the transfer of media and information within the university, which also welcomes external students and other interested visitors. It provides media, workstations and equipment and supports users in their scientific work. The services are mainly aimed at students, university professors and employees of the university.

Please prepare your visit to the university library thoroughly from home: research the signatures in the OPAC and wear mouth and nose protection when visiting our rooms.
Please pick out the books yourself in the open stacks and have them checked out at the circulation desk.
Admission is controlled by a limited number of 5 baskets, which are disinfected after each use. Access is only permitted with a basket.
Remember the applicable hygiene regulations and the minimum distance of 1.5 metres to other people!
When entering and leaving the library building, please observe the instructions and markings!
Continue to make increased use of our electronic services!
All students and staff members with an HNE account can access licensed e-books, e-journals and databases from outside.
To do so, you must first log in via VPN.
Our e-books can be found in the OPAC or via Ebook Central.
Electronic journals can best be searched in the Electronic Journals Library (EZB).
In any case we will find a satisfactory solution for everyone!
