Who May Use the Library?

All persons who are at least 14 years old can use the SLUB Dresden. By entering the library building, you accept our regulations and are entitled to use our freely available resources.

When Do I Register as a Library User?

 If you want to use online resources, borrow books from the SLUB or other libraries or use the SLUB makerspace, you'll need a library card, which can be issued at all SLUB library locations.

First, please send us your personal information by using our registration form.

For identification, please bring your ID card or a passport and an official certificate of residency. Non-EU citizens still need a registration certificate or, alternatively, a signed affidavit. If you are a student of the TU Dresden, please, also provide a certificate of matriculation.

People under the age of 16 need to present written consent from a parent or guardian, an ID card or passport.

User Account: Managing Your Personal Details

You can request and renew media online, or reserve checked-out items, if you log in to your user account. Upon receipt of your library card, please change your personal user account password and create a PIN.

What to Do if the Library Card Is Lost?

Please suspend (deactivate) your account immediately, in order to prevent any form of misuse, and contact the SLUB circulation desk. A new library card costs € 5.00.
