The main task of the University Library (UB) is to provide information and literature for the scientists and students of the university. Students automatically receive access to the UB. The student ID card serves as the library ID card. The user number (017th ..) is printed on the backside.
Students of the Summer University, exchange students, and scholarship holders receive restricted access to the library. In order to receive a library ID card (for borrowing, making orders, reservations, and interlibrary loans), the user must demonstrate that he/she is spending at least one semester at the University of Bayreuth. However, even without a library ID card, every person may use the holdings of the university library, which are freely accessible in the reading rooms of the Main Library and the department libraries.
For Campus-Academy students: When presenting your ID you will receive a library ID card and then you will be able to use all holdings and services offered by the university library.
Using the library services (registration, borrowing media, etc.) is free for students - and also for the general public from the city and surrounding area. Costs only occur for overdue items, copies via interlibrary loan, scan jobs, etc. Possible fees are collected in the fee list.
