Current Developments

Reopening of the library

Library Services from 11 May 2020
Borrowing Hours: Mon, Wed & Thu 1 – 4 p.m. and Tue & Fri 9 a.m. – 12 p.m.

From Monday, 11 May 2020, we may offer borrowing under special conditions until further notice, and we will of course continue to offer the scan service for the reference holdings (not borrowable: journals & module literature). Entering the library (with the exception of the anteroom) is still not permitted.

Borrowing after pre-order for the next opening hours:
- Up to 5 media can be borrowed per day and person
- Preorder to
- Preorders only from WWU e-mail addresses
- Processing only with indication of Sports Library shelfmarks

Pick up only with confirmation e-mail in the specified time window.
Uncollected preorders are deleted after opening hours and sorted back on the shelf.

From now on the borrowing conditions [en] of the Library of Sports and Exercise Sciences (max. 10 media per person, lending period 2 weeks etc.) will apply again.
Reminder e-mails will also be sent again with the currently valid lending periods and the media must be extended or returned accordingly.

Returns are now also possible again during the above-mentioned opening hours without an appointment.

Important: At present, only personal loans are possible, as we have to document every person who enters the library. Proxy borrowing is currently not possible!

If the scan requests for classes allow it, we will continue to offer a scan service for students. Here we will especially process scan orders for reference holdings (not borrowable: journals & module literature).
- Up to 5 orders per day and person
- Order to
- Orders only from WWU e-mail addresses
- Processing only with complete bibliographic information (title, year(s), issue, Pages) and the Sports Library shelfmarks

The processing takes place within the framework of copyright law. Please use your WWU e-mail, because we are only allowed to make scans for members of the WWU. E-mails from private addresses will not be processed.

For questions and information, we are available for you Monday to Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. by phone at (0251) 83-32346 and by e-mail at
