Get to know the library

Göttingen State and University Library offers introductions to the library, its use and its history to students, university staff and interested citizens.

Central Library and Divisional Libraries

As initial orientation, we recommend all new users to attend the tour Getting to know the library: Library Tours in English. You can also participate in guided tours through the Divisional Libraries and the Waldweg Library, which take place mostly at the beginning of new semesters.
We offer you an introduction to our catalogues, databases and other research services in our course Basics for Beginners. There are more courses and guided library tours available.

On this short virtual tour through the Central Library you will get a first impression of the building and its services.
