Information for faculty members of the University of Freiburg and other Freiburg universities and colleges

Faculty members of the University of Freiburg or other Freiburg universities and colleges may use the library without submitting a prior written request.

When you arrive at the Institute (reception desk), please identify yourself as a faculty member. If you are not known personally, we kindly ask you for a moment of patience while the receptionist verifies your name in the university course catalogue.

For reasons of convenience and to avoid unnecessary bureaucracy, we will gladly issue a library permit for the entire semester.

If written confirmation of the proven research interest is provided by the faculty member, assistants authorized by faculty members may also use the library without submitting a prior written request.

Assistants will also be issued a library permit for the entire semester if it is evident that access to the library on behalf of the faculty member will be needed frequently.

Faculty members and their assistants may use the library during the Institute's opening hours. We kindly ask all other users who have not yet been advised of the library rules to arrive during the library’s service hours on their first visit. Library permits are issued during service hours. Books that have been reserved in advance can also be picked up then.
