The library of the English Seminar is located on the first floor at Johannisstraße 12 – 20. The special library offers an ever-growing collection of some 100,000 volumes, 280 digital media, 39,000 microfilms, and other audio-visual resources.

The English Department has a reference library. Accordingly, books may be read in the library or partially copied. This allows all users uninterrupted access to the library’s resources. Recent acquisitions can be found on a special shelf in room 106.

All students of the WWU with a valid student identification card can loan books over the weekend and public holidays.  There is also the possibility of a short-term loan for out-of-house copying. The borrowing policy can be found under  Library Regulations
