Use of the electronic offers licensed by the ULB

For non-university users, the electronic offers licensed by the ULB (e.g. databases, e-journals, e-books) can only be used at special PC workstations in the ULB premises. For this you need a corresponding access code, the so-called citizen identifier. You will receive this access code for free. Would you like to apply for this access code in addition to the library card?

The library's PC workstations are available exclusively for scientific, teaching and studying purposes. The use is subject to the provisions of the WWU-IT’s and the IV units’ Terms of Use.
Please note that during the coronavirus pandemic, the ULB's PC workstations are not available or only available to a limited extent. You will find information on the current status on our information page on service restrictions during the corona crisis.
Additional offer: The regular workstations of the ULB (without PC equipment) currently have to be reserved online. People outside the university can still reserve free workplaces one hour before the start of a time slot. However, access to the online seat reservation service is only possible with a citizen ID - it makes sense to apply for a citizen ID if you want to take advantage of this additional offer!"

With the citizen identifier you can also use the ULB's seat reservation service.
