ZHB closed until further notice

Library closed

Attention please

because of the regulations concerning the corona virus the Zentrale Hochschulbibliothek has to be closed at present.

Please take notice of our website for update information!


We currently have a “Renewal of Goodwill” for all books lent, including interlibrary loan, until around 18. May 2020.

Reservations for borrowed books have unfortunately not been possible since March 14, 2020.


Limited possibility of interlibrary loan:

Currently it is possible for users already registered for interlibrary loan to order articles and receive them electronically.
This offer is limited until further notice till May 31th 2020, valid especially for articles from journals and to a limited extent from book as well. It is meant as usual only for your own scientific use and not for distribution.


To return books, you can use our blue return box to the right of our main entrance.

Please do not put the keys of your lockers in this box, but keep them until the library is opened again.


If you miss things from your locker or study cabin, you can call us today from Monday to Friday between 9 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. on 0451-3101 / 2201 or write to zhb.info(at)uni-luebeck(dot)de.

We can then set an appointment for things.

One day you may not be able to reach us by phone during this time. Please try again later or the next business day.


For a discharge at the end of your studies, please send an email to zhb.info(at)uni-luebeck(dot)de or by post to the Central University Library, Ratzeburger Allee 160, 23562 Lübeck.
