How to use our library?
Our library is open to the public. Non-affiliates of the FHV need a valid library card. In general, there are four ways to use our library:
All media can be used in the rooms of the library. Research workstations with computers, workstations in the reading room, study rooms and a periodicals area are available for this purpose.
Our media can be borrowed for four weeks. Renewals are possible up to a maximum loan period of 12 weeks, provided the media has not been preregistered. Individual media (such as newspapers and magazines of the current year, books from semester collections, encyclopedias) are reference holdings and can only be used in the library.
Literature not available in the library can be ordered via interlibrary loan. However, there is a charge for this.
Our users can access over 76,000 e-books, 14,000 e-journals and various subject databases in the library. Off-campus access is also available for students, faculty, and staff
Our information desk is the contact and contact point for our users. If you have any questions about using the library, please contact our staff at the information desk. They are happy to help.
