services for regional patrons


Regional patrons (private individuals, including pupils) may register at the central lending desk or online. To register, you will need a valid proof of address (ID papers or passport with registration card or residence document). You may send these as scans to our via mail when registering online.

If registering in person, you will receive the library card immediately. When registering online you will receive it via mail. Registration is free. The library card is valid for one year and may be extended with a valid document showing your address.

lending extensions

Media may be extended up to ten times. Please use your online account    for this. If you wish to retain a title after ten extensions, you will have to show it at the lending desk. This has to be the lending desk of the holding library, not one of the other branches.


You may return media via the book boxes at our branch libraries. Media will be quarantined for two days. To account for this, a grace period of five days starting at the end of the lending period has been set up. You will only be fined after these have passed.


If media aren't returned in time, they will be feed at 2,00€ five days after the lending period has ended. 14 days later, the second overdue notice at 5,00€ per medium is sent. Another 14 days later, the third overdue notice will be sent via registered post at 10,00€ per medium. The singular fees are added, so there will be 17,00€ to pay per medium after the third overdue notice. Should the feed media not be returned after the third overdue notice, ULB will start a replacement purchase for the overdue titles.

During the overdue period, there is no grace period for the two day quarantine!

literature research

You can use our discovery system Ha:Lit. Sadly, the information material is only available in German.

Use of print resources

Gedruckte Medien können in den Zweigbibliotheken i.d.R. selbst aus den Regalen entnommen werden, Magazinbestände (darin eingeschlossen sind auch die Bestände der derzeit geschlossenen Zweigbibliotheken Vorderer Orient und IZEA) müssen über die Kataloge bestellt werden. Sie erhalten eine Nachricht, sobald die Medien zur Abholung bereit liegen. Literatur mit Erscheinungsjahren vor 1920 kann nur in die Lesesäle bestellt werden.

trainings and tours

ULB offers a broad introduction to library use every 2nd wednesday of the month. If you are interested in trainings for pupil groups, reference management software, databases or for tours through our historical magazine building, please contact the . All trainings and tours are free.

Printing, Scanning, Copies

The multi-purpose printers in the libraries may be used with the library card. The card needs to be charged with money (minimum charge: 10,00€). You can charge the card at the payment stations in the libraries and at the payment stations in the canteens. Please note that a girocard is required. Credit card payment or cash are not possible. Please refer to the table for costs:

Copy/Print B/W A40,055€
Copy/Print Colour A40,075
Copy/Print B/W A30,11€
Copy/Print Colour A30,15€

There is a detailled instruction for the use of the multi-purpose printers.

interlibrary loan

Literature not available at the ULB or other libraries in Halle may be ordered from other German or international libraries. To use this interlibrary loan, you will need an interlibrary loan account at the GBV, which the central lending desk will gladly create for you. Before ordering, you will need to charge the account. The cost is 1.50€ per interlibrary loan, which will be charged regardless of possible delivery. To order interlibrary loan titles, please use the Gemeinsamer Verbundkatalog   .

Please note: Due to copyright reasons, orders on partial copies of books or journal articles can only be delivered in paper form.

If you want to use international interlibrary loan, please contact the .


Subito is a document delivery service   , that also allows the borrowing of books and/or the delivery of chapters from books or journal articles. Due to existing licensing contracts, delivery of papers or chapter parts may be electronic. Titles are delivered directly to the patron. The fees are higher than for interlibrary loan.
