Account

You can access your library account via this links: Würzburg   Schweinfurt
To log in you need your library ID-no. printed on your student ID card. As well as your password. Within your account you can check which media items you’ve lend, the dates of return and if there are any open fees you have to pay.

 

Branch order

If a book is “available for request” it has to be ordered from another branch. This request is at no charge and takes about a week.

 

Copies

Copiers are placed within our library rooms. For usage you need to have your student ID charged with money.

 

External access

Many licensed materials, which are provided by the library, are only accessible on the university campus, e.g. specialized databases, eBooks, eJournals and teaching videos.
With the external access we provide the possibility to access such licensed material while off campus. 

 

Fees

There is no general fee, if you would like to use our library system. Exceptions to this are costs for ordering a copy via Interlibrary loan as well as the delay fees for late media returns.

 

Interlibrary loan

Media items that aren’t available within our library system (additionally in Würzburg: neither at the university library) can be ordered via interlibrary loan.

 

Library card

As an immatriculated FHWS-student your valid student ID serves also as a library card. If you are no student at all you will receive a library card by the first time you come to our circulation desk for your registration. For registration we need your valid passport.

 

Lost materials

Media items, which can’t be returned by the borrower are declared as “lost”. The library user will be billed a replacement cost for those books, CDs, DVDs or any other media item.

 

Password

The default password consists of the day and month of your birthdate, i.e. ddmm. If you’ve have changed your password and forgot which one it was, please contact us.

 

Purchase request

To cover all information demands, we give you the possibility to suggest us a media item for purchase.

 

Renewal

5 working days before the end of the lending period, you are able to renew the date of return. You can do this by either log-in to your account, sending us an e-mail or you can give us a call.

 

Reservation

If a media item is already “on loan”, you are able to put a reservation on it online. Open the detailed data record of the item and choose the option “Get document” > “order”. You will receive a notification by the time the media item is ready for pickup at the circulation desk.

 

Return of books

The regular lending period of all media items is 4 weeks. But some media are just for reference, i.e. they are non-lendable. Some other media belong to a special collection, the so called “Lehrbuchsammlung” (textbook collection), with a lending period of 100 days. The return date of any media item can be checked via your online account.

 

User ID

If you are asked for your user ID, you will find it on your student ID or the library card. It always starts with 083…
