Customer-orientation and excellent services for our users are the highest priority at our University Library. A friendly demeanor and flexibility are what characterizes our contact with our users, we strive to attain a high level of availability and transparency, and place great importance on ensuring excellent service at all locations.

University library - relaxation of corona restrictions

From 06.05. the campus libraries will be open again for lending by appointment.
The campus libraries in Kaiserslautern and Zweibrücken are open from Monday to Thursday during the semester break, the campus library in Pirmasens on Monday and Wednesday from 8.30 to 12.00 and from 13.00 to 16.00.

For media returns at the Kaiserslautern and Zweibrücken locations, the media return boxes are available again from today (03.08.2020), during the opening hours of the buildings. No appointment is necessary!

Unfortunately, inter-library loan is still not available, as many libraries are currently not occupied.

Use of the reading and PC workstations is unfortunately not yet possible, nor are copiers and book scanners available.

Please note that for the protection of the students as well as the staff of the university, the applicable hygiene and distance conditions must be observed on the entire campus (among other things, access to the buildings is only permitted with a so-called makeshift mask covering mouth and nose).

Furthermore, the following emergency service applies:

  •     Information will be provided by e-mail or telephone.
  •     Articles from print magazines from our stock are copied within the scope of copyright and sent by
        e-mail as an internal delivery service.
  •     Databases and eBooks licensed by the university are accessible via VPN - we are expanding this service.
  •     More on researching full texts
  •     We offer some training courses via video conference.
