Date: May 08, 2020

Resumption of book loan for members of Bonn University Starting Monday, May 11th 2020, book loan is available again.

Of Monday, May 11th 2020, it is possible to borrow books from both Main Library (Adenauerallee 39-41, 53113 Bonn) and MNL Branch Library (Nußallee 15a, 53115 Bonn). In order to protect the health of our users, the ULB implements a special service:

Required books may be pre-ordered, using an online form, and can be picked up at the respective lending desk. Hence, a prolonged stay in the book stacks is prevented. For book collection, the ULB is open


Monday to Friday, 10:00 a.m. to 03:00 p.m.


Loan periods for books already on loan are extended until further notice. There is currently no need to return them.

For more up-to-date information on returns, lending and interlibrary loans, please refer to the frequently asked questions on Corona-related "safe operations".

For journal articles not available digitally, we will offer you a digitization service, starting from May 18th. For requests on journal-digitzations please use our online form.

Book loan and journal digitization service is restricted to members of Bonn University for the time being. Regarding this decision we kindly ask for your understanding. We will expand our services as soon as our capacities allow for it. In concession for the reduced services, the ULB decided to pause the annual fees for library usage for external users for the time being.

Please be aware, that wearing a mouth and nose protection is highly recommended when visiting our library. Also, please keep your distance of 1.5 meters from others and adhere to the cough- and hand-hygiene.

For the ULB as for Bonn University, health protection is of highest priority. All measures taken are coordinated with the rectorate and follow the decrees of the federal state government. Hence, all reading rooms, the "Lerncafé" and break rooms, the information centre as well as all groupd study pods stay closed until further notice. We kindly ask for your understanding. 

Stay healthy,

your ULB
