External users

As an external user, you have restricted use of the library. You can register for a free library card at the customer service desk on production of your ID card, your current address, or your passport containing proof of your current address.

By taking receipt of your library card, you declare you consent to the User regulations PDF and the Schedule of charges and fees PDF of the library.

The library card is valid for the Esslingen University libraries on the Flandernstrasse campus and the Göppingen campus. There is no library on the Esslingen City Centre campus. You can order media to be transferred from Esslingen to Göppingen and vice versa.

Your library card automatically provides you with a library account, which you can use to manage your media online (e.g. extend a loan, make a reservation or cancel documents you have ordered).
