Getting to know the library: Library Tours in English

Current note:
Unfortunately we cannot offer a regular guided tour until further notice.
On this short virtual tour through the Central Library of the Göttingen State and University Library you will get a first impression of the building and the services.

To help you find your way around the Central Library, we offer guided library tours in English. In a 30-minute tour, we will show you around, provide a general introduction to our services, explain how you can borrow and return books, and answer any questions you have about using the library.

Our library tours will be of interest to everyone new to the university. Attending a library tour is also recommended prior to participating in our courses on introduction to research.

Library tours for groups can also be organised on demand at other times. To arrange a tour for a group of your students please contact us.
