Freshmen WS 20/21


Dear freshmen,

Students and lecturers of the RWTH are supplied with literature by the University Library and the libraries of the institutes and departments.

The University Library performs central tasks such as interlibrary loan. Here you can borrow media over a longer period of time - usually four weeks for books.

The individual institute libraries cover the demand for specialist literature. Here the media should remain accessible to all users at all times. Therefore, in normal times they can only be borrowed over the weekend by members of the institute. However, as long as the reading and workstations of the German Studies Library may not be used due to the Corona pandemic, books can also be borrowed here on a long-term basis. You will need your own identity card for this purpose:

Library cards for first-year students of IGAL (Institute for General and German Literature Studies) and ISK (Institute for Linguistics and Communication Studies) are available - again due to the corona pandemic - this time as part of a library tour. You will be informed about this in your tutorials.

Please bring your own: Identity card, Blue Card, certificate of study, 1 passport photo.

We wish you a successful start!
