Departmental Library

Due to COVID-19 and the current lockdown, our departmental library remains closed. However, urgently needed books may be ordered via the library catalogue and can then be picked up from Teilbibliothek 04.

About the Library

The departmental library houses two collections: American Studies (Amerikanistik) and English Philology (Englische Philologie). It is located in C-tower, Bismarckstr. 1, Erlangen; the entrance is on the 6th floor (room C602). For an overview of specific locations, contact information, new arrivals, and how to get there, please see: American Studies or English Philology.

Research and Study/Work

The library offers three research stations and eight desks. You may use the research stations to conduct quick searches. If you plan to study at or work from the library for a longer period of time, you must register at the counter and fill out a contact tracing form.

Lending Period
