FUBiS participants may use the university's vast library system comprising the Central University Library (Universitätsbibliothek), the Philological Library (Philologische Bibliothek) as well as a series of departmental libraries. The user-oriented library information system provides the literature for research, teaching, and studying. Free Internet access is available at all libraries.
For a short user's guide to the University's Central Library in English please see http://www.ub.fu-berlin.de/en/.
The Library Information System OPAC (online public access catalogue) can be found here.
We regret that it is not possible for FUBiS students to borrow books. The libraries require a permanent German address to do so. However, students may order books for usage in the reading room area.
