New: Online-Kit (German) and literature delivery service
  • Use our Online-Kit (German) to learn how to use our digital resources from home.

    To support research and teaching efforts at HHU during this time we are currently developing a literature delivery service through which employees of HHU can order scans of printed journal articles and book chapters from ULB collections for free. At this time, you can order scans of legal literature. We are planning to expand this service to literature from more faculties starting next week.

We are still here for you.
Please use our electronic services.
  • As a University Member  you have access to our e-books, e-journals and databases via the search portal or the research page. Apart from some exceptions, electronic services can be used outside HHU campus after installing the VPN-Client or via Shibboleth. 

    In this current situation, many publishers are giving out temporary free access for articles, journals and e-books. You can find a compilation of these services here.

    Please don't hesitate to send us a purchase suggestion in case you find an e-book that is currently not in our collection.

Information regarding borrowed media, purchase suggestions and fines
  • Currently borrowed media will be automatically renewed until May 15th.

    Overdue fines already incurred will not increase.

    Borrowing media, stack orders and interlibrary loans are not possible at the moment. Your reserved media will remain unchanged and can be borrowed as soon as the library opens. Fines will be remitted.

Closed until April 19th – please use our online services!

Because the start of lectures in North-Rhine Westphalia has been postponed, HHU rectorate and the library director have decided to keep all library locations closed until April 19th. The goal of these measures is to protect your and our employee's health and to prevent new COVID-19 infections.
