The library will remain closed for on-site use.

Lending and return are possible!

Please note the following procedure:

in order to have as little encounter traffic as possible, everyone must book an appointment here

Appointments are possible from Monday to Thursday, from 10.30 to 15.30 and by individual arrangement.

in case of loans the library needs additional information - at the latest 1 hour before the appointment, if possible already the day before - via email (ethno-bibliothek@uni-koeln.de):

  1. the USB user number
  2. Title, author and signature of the book(s)

At the booked date, the books already compiled and booked to your USB account can be collected and / or already borrowed media can be returned.

It is still not possible to use the library on site.
Remember to wear a mask in all buildings of the university!
