• A library account is necessary if you wish to take home books from the library, request books from closed stacks, or place a reservation for currently borrowed books.
  • E-resources: Freely available e-resources are accessible via u:search without a library card. To find those, filter the findings for “open access”. In the Electronic Journals Library (EZB), freely accessible journals are marked in green.
    Please be aware that users, who do not study or work at the University of Vienna, whether they obtain a library card or not, cannot access electronic resources due to contractual licensing reasons. However, e-books, e-journals and databases can be accessed using the research PCs provided at the main library and other departmental libraries or using the WIFI provided at the libraries.
  • After creating a u:account, please enter your personal data and upload a suitable picture of yourself to get a library card.
