The SRH Library provides students with an study environment equipped with ten desks.

During library opening hours our staff will be happy to assist you in-person or by e-mail or phone with any inquiries regarding research and information. Making sure that you have found the information you need is of the most importance.

All members of SRH Hochschule Berlin are able to register for a library card.

Students must also provide their student ID when registering. Staff must provide their identity card.

Books and other printed material can be borrowed for a standard duration of one week. During writing of theses the loan period is four weeks.

Media reserved for on-campus use only (reference books, hand books, limited editions) can be borrowed for no longer than one day and must be returned before the library closes.

Borrowed materials can be renewed in-person, online (Online Catalogue), via phone or e-mail. If the source has been borrowed by another user the library staff will inform you immediately.

The Library Regulations determine the legal relationship between the university library and our users.

Sources that are not accessible via the SRH or TU Libraries can be ordered via interlibrary loan. This service enables the exchange of media between various libraries throughout Germany.

To order books and articles use the platform of the Kooperativen Bibliotheksverbund Berlin-Brandenburg (KOBV).

Before ordering journal articles it is recommended to first search the journal title in the Zeitschriftendatenbank (ZDB).
