Library and Corona

Due to the current requirements of the state of NRW and the Rhine-Waal University of Applied Sciences, it is possible to visit the library without a GGG certificate.

Despite the relaxation at federal and state level, we still recommend that our users implement the well-known Corona protection measures such as wearing a mask and keeping their distance from each other.

We look forward to seeing you!

Attention! Due to loud renovation work on the ground floor in Kleve, the working atmosphere may be affected. The external return station is out of order. Please use the return station on the 5th floor!

    Loan periods can be extended in Katalog PLUS or at the self-service terminals at the earliest seven days before the end of the loan period and at the latest on the regular return date. An extension after the deadline date is no longer possible.

    For overdue loan periods fees will be charged.

    Information for external users

    If you had already paid your registration fees but were unable to use the library due to the Corona closure, we will be happy to extend your library card validity by the lost time. Please contact us for this purpose.

    Currently, external users without Eduroam cannot access online resources.
