Welcome to FAU Library

Get off to a successful start to the winter semester. The university library provides you with important information about its services:

Finding resources – quick and easy

The FAUcard is also your library card for the University Library. Before you can borrow books using your ‘UB ID’ you have to activate the library function in the IDM portal.

For booking a place on a library training session via Zoom: https://ub.fau.de/en/studying/advice-and-training/training/.

These short videos are designed to show you how to find books and journals as hardcopies and in electronic form, navigate subject-specific databases or place inter-library loan requests. You can find all our e-tutorials on the library’s YouTube channel. We will be releasing more videos in the near future and would welcome your suggestions and feedback.

Learning at the library

You have to use the seat booking and reservation system “RSVP“ for booking study spaces in the central libraries and the Departmental Library Law (02JU). If you want to study in other locations, you do not have to reserve a desk online.
