Library Profile

The Biggest in the Region

With about 4 million entries in our collection, the University Library Regensburg is the largest academic library in the region. Its main task is to provide the academics and students of the University of Regensburg with literature and information relevant to their subject areas. Additionally, the University Library disseminates information effectively to the wider community both in the city of Regensburg and the surrounding region.

Since its founding in 1964, the library has been involved in innovative developments. New fields of activity have opened up, in particularly that of electronic services. In addition, the library enriches the cultural life of Regensburg with a multitude of exhibitions.

Central Library

Literature and media

The library offers a large selection of printed and electronic media on all topics and in all subjects:

Service for all

Discover for yourself the impressive media world round the clock on the internet. You can find all the University Library media together with the inventory of Regensburg's other libraries in the Regensburg Catalogue plus (Regensburger Katalog plus).

A large part of our material is ordered and arranged according to subject in the 13 reading rooms of the library's branches and in the Central Library, and so made available for use directly here. Come into the University Library and rummage through the shelves for yourself. These reading rooms have over 3,500 places to work where you can read intensively, concentrate and study.

Much of the media we offer can be ordered online via Regensburg Catalogue plus (Regensburger Katalog plus), collected and lent out to take home.
