Offers for guests

Resident physicians, visiting professors, guest students and other scientifically interested persons are cordially welcome to use the holdings and workplace facilities in the Medical Branch Library.

The library is freely accessible without the necessity of adhering to any formalities. All freely accessible holdings can be used in the rooms of the library. Only a small part of our holdings (doctoral theses, journal volumes) are stored in the closed stacks and can only be used with prior notice.
