German Studies

The physical library is temporarily closed, but our digital services remain available. Should you have any questions or be in need of guidance, please do not hesitate to contact us. 

We will be unable to provide physical documents. If you experience trouble accessing the literature you need, please contact us. We may be able to provide digital access or alternative literature. See the bottom of this page for contact information for your subject librarian.

Please ignore messages to pick-up or return documents until further notice.

You can also contact UiBHjelp or try our chat. 


The library provides access to a wide selection of German literature, scholarly literature in German studies, journals, databases and other types of material, in printed or electronic form. These can be found by using our discovery tool Oria (see search box further up).
