In both libraries, the shelving areas are accessible again, so you can pick out media yourself and check them out at the self-service terminals.

You can still order media by specifying the title and signature (e.g. 100/QP 530 H979) via mail and pick them up on the next opening day during the hours listed below.

We offer postal delivery for students who live outside the city of Hof or belong to a risk group. Please let us know your current mailing address.
