The library of Rhine-Waal University of Applied Sciences is a scientific library open to the public and available both to those seeking information within the university and to all interested persons outside the university. You can use the physical media on site and learn or work in the library without registration.

Borrowing media and using other services of the library requires prior registration. This is free of charge for all users.

Registration is possible at the information desk during service hours. When you receive your library card, you must identify yourself by means of a valid original photo ID. By signing the library card, the user accepts the library's terms and conditions of use and data protection.

A registration form is no longer required for registration in Kleve. Usually you will receive your library card directly when you register.

In Kamp-Lintfort, registration forms are still being used for a transitional period, as library cards have to be ordered in Kleve. Usually you will receive the library card about 1 week after registration. If you have a long way to travel and want to save yourself a second journey, fill in the registration form online and send it to us in good time by e-mail to
