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.
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
Attention: The pandemic-related change in the lending conditions for students is still valid. The loan period for books and other media is currently 1 week, a one-week extension is possible on request.
