Information and Use

The library is open to the public, and it’s use free of charge. Desired literature may be borrowed in accordance with user regulations or viewed in the reading hall. Designated workstations and a free scanning service are also available in the reading hall.

Electronic catalogues and a classic card index system for unrecorded items are available for literature searches in the library. For more information on inventory and use, please contact the library staff during regular opening hours of the reading hall by phone at (0345) 472 39-147 or by e-mail at bibliothek@leopoldina.org.

To place an order from the online catalogue, you must first register as a user in the reading hall during opening hours. Please bring an official photo ID (identity card or passport) and, if applicable, proof of your registered address. The registration form can also be downloaded from this page. You may fill it out in advance on your computer and bring it with you in printed form or send it in advance by e-mail. You may also submit your order requests at the same time.

All ordered media will be made available in the reading hall for collection or use in the library. Because our media are stored in external stacks, the provision times can sometimes be longer. In addition, certain media types are generally unavailable for borrowing outside the library. As soon as an ordered item is ready for you, it is given the status “Library counter of the Leopoldina” in your user account. For borrowed works, you may independently apply for an extension of the loan period via user account.
