Restricted access April 2 to May 10, 2024

From April 2 to May 10, 2024 admission to the BRuW is restricted to Goethe University students, staff and articled clerks (Rechtsreferendar*innen) during weekdays (Monday to Friday) from 9am to 4pm. Before entering the library, please show your Goethe Card or Referendarausweis. There are no restrictions after 4pm as well as on Saturdays and Sundays.

Library card, registration
Your Goethe Card is your library card. No registration is required for using the collection in the library. For students from other universities and non-student users a library card will be issued free of charge at the registration desk of the University Library. An e-mail address is required in order to be notified about the arrival of items reserved (see Reservation).

Lending, renewals
Loan period for students is four weeks. The loan period can be renewed five times for a further four weeks, provided it has not been reserved by another user. The renewal can be done online. For further renewals, you need to go to the loan desk in person with your Goethe Card/library card and the books. Renewals by mail, postcard or telephone are not accepted.

For overdue items reminders are sent via e-mail and fines are charged as follows:

- first reminder:  Euro 3.00 per item 
- second reminder:  Euro 3.00 per item 
- third reminder:  Euro 6.00 per item 
The fine is charged as soon as the reminder is issued and is not dependant on when or if you receive it.

Items currently on loan can be reserved (exception: if an item has been reserved by 2 other users, no further reservations can be placed). As soon as the desired item is available, you will be notified via e-mail (see Registration).

To search the holdings of the BRuW, the University Library and several other libraries, some public computers are available. The Frankfurt University's Search Portal lists books, doctoral dissertations, journals, e-journals, and other non-book materials.

In order to search the internet the number of your Goethe Card/library card and your password is needed as an account.
Please note the change of the login. Thinclients of the HRZ can be used with the account of the HRZ only. See an overview of the changes here.
