Using the Library

The Classical Philology, Medieval and Neolatin Library is mostly an open-shelf library where the majority of the items may be borrowed. You need a valid library card to borrow items. The loan period is 28 days.

Items that may only be used at the Library: periodicals, lexicons, translations, textbooks, important standard works

Please note: Works on Medieval Latin literature (shelf marks "Mittellatein Autoren A-Z” as well as "Mittellatein Monographien A-Z") have to be kept in closed stacks due to lack of space. If you want to use books kept in the closed stacks, please consult the employee at the information desk who will collect the books from the stacks for you. Medieval Latin lexicons are available in the open-shelf area.

A copier is available at the Library.
