Returns - How can I return media?

Borrowed media can be returned during library service hours.

The return areas are shown separately in the library rooms.

Please note: The media will only be booked from your user account after a quarantine period. If reminders arise on the system side between the timely return by you and the booking back by the library staff, these will be credited to your user account.


Borrowing - How can I borrow media?

Library staff will provide media from the library inventory for you.

Please order the desired media in advance using the PDF form linked below.

You will receive a notification to your official university e-mail account as soon as the media are ready for collection during library service hours.

Please note: The loan period begins on the day of notification by email.

Membership - How can I renew my membership?

Please send us an email to bibliothek(at)hs-emden-leer.de with the following content:

  • informal request to renew membership
  • full name and student number
  • your current address

You will receive a confirmation email when we have processed your request.

An extension of the membership in the library is unfortunately not possible for hygienic reasons.

Registration - How do I register as a new member of the university library?

Step 1: fill out the form

Fill in the "Registration - Emden" form linked below on the computer if possible and print it out.

If you cannot fill out the form on the computer, print out the form and fill out all the required fields in legible font.

Step 2: sign the form

Sign the form. We cannot process forms that are not signed.

Step 3: copy of the CampusCard

Make a copy of the front and back of your CampusCard.

If you do not have a CampusCard and are therefore one of the so-called external users, we are currently unable to offer you library services. Please inform yourself about further developments on the website of the library.

Step 4: copy of the ID card

Make a copy of the front and back of your ID card.

Foreign students please make a copy of your passport. In this case, we also need proof of your place of residence in Germany. Therefore, please also make a copy of your registration certificate.

Step 5: Let us get all the documents by post

  • Completed and signed form,
