Many schools, one book - a project with the ZfL
You can now use a database of music magazines from the middle of the 18th to the 19th century: RIPM Preservation Series: European & North American Music Periodicals. Read more about our new databases >>

You want to learn in a group and don't know where to go? - Use the classrooms of the PhilFac!
On Mondays to Fridays you can "book" a free room with the caretaker of the Faculty of Philosophy by depositing your UCCard there. This pilot project ends on 4 October 2019.
Have a quick look to check if there is still room for learning?
An app is now available for the reading rooms of the Department of Human Sciences and the Economics Library that displays the occupancy rate of workstations (in percent) in real time. Simply install the app and you'll always know whether it's worthwhile to visit these libraries.
In the next 11 months we will test this offer for you. The HWA and VWL libraries are the beginning, the USB will follow as soon as possible.
How do you find this app? Write us an e-mail >>
Our journal display has moved to the 2nd floor
A large part of the current issues of our print subscriptions has moved to reading room VII, 2nd floor. The issues are stored on the shelves according to filing numbers (e.g. P 0124).
In the coming weeks the newspapers and journals of the Rheinische Abteilung will also move.
For Students at the University of Cologne: Activate your UCCard as library card
