Borrowing Material over the Weekend

Friday 9 a.m. - noon and 1 - 3 p.m. (Returns: Monday by noon)
The Institute of Art History has a non-lending library. However, it is possible to borrow books over the weekend. The Institute relies on its users returning the books on time so that they can be used again at the latest on the next working day. Books from the semester book collections (Semesterapparat) cannot be borrowed.
During the semester, you can only borrow and return books from the Art History Library at the Institute of Art History’s information desk (in the hallway).

Late Returns

If you do not return books on time, the library director reserves the right to take further steps (e.g. prohibiting you from borrowing books). Late fees may be assessed.

Copier (Room 118)

It is only possible to copy from books to a limited extent.

Focus Areas of the Library

Stock of Literature


OPAC for the Library at the Institute of Art History - here you can research all new books. The older books in stock are continually being added to this catalogue. Currently, 90% of the library's stock is included in OPAC and can be researched. The older books of the following classification groups still need to be added: YA, YP (auction catalogues), ...f (titles in the folio section).

The following card catalogues are still valid for the older books in the classification groups listed above:

In the Institute’s hallway, there are two computers that can be used for OPAC research work.
