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  about 117 000 volumes, 900 digital media, 39 000 microfilms, and other audio-visual resources.
NEW (May 2022):
All the holdings of the Book Studies Library (formerly Aegidiistr. 5) have now been integrated into the library of the English Department and are fully available for use. You will find this collection on the 2nd floor.

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.
NEW (September 2022):
All students of the University of Münster with a valid student identification card can loan books. Since 01.09.2022, lending is done via ALMA, our new library system. ALMA also changes the lending conditions in our library: Students can borrow a maximum of 5 books for 1 week.
The loan period for academic staff of the University of Münster is 4 weeks.
Some holdings (journals, books with special locations, etc.) are excluded from borrowing.
