Order media before your visit to the library:

Due to the number of visitors being limited, media can be ordered for check-out in advance. Please contact us by telephone (07071/79526-16) or by e-mail (Bibliothek@dai-tuebingen.de) and let us know which media you would like to check out (exact title and author). Please don’t forget to communicate your name and library card number.

You can use the online catalog to get further information on media and their availability.

Please give us one day to get your media ready for check-out; we will then reserve them for three days, and you can pick them up at the circulation desk. Please remember to bring your library card.


We are looking forward to your visit!
