You can register for a library card by filling in the following online form:

Then you go to the University Library's registration desk with the following documents to fulfill your registration:

  • a valid personal ID or passport and official proof of residence (Meldebescheinigung)
  • registration fee: 5 euros

Oldenburg University students skip the online registration and only go to the University Library's registration desk. Besides they require:

  • their valid Student ID

If you come from abroad and are not a member of the University, you must present a residence permit (Aufenthaltsgenehmigung) as proof of residence.

If you already have a library card from the Oldenburg State Library, please present it when you register.

Your library card is not transferable.

With your library card you receive a password for your library account via e-mail which you should change immediately in your library account.

If your library card is no longer working please contact the staff at the Registration/Payments Desk. To avoid malfunction handle your card with care and be sure not to bend it. If your card is damaged and no longer readable we will not be able to refund any remaining credit.
