Waldweg Library

The Waldweg Library supplies information and literature on teaching methodology, pedagogy, philosophy, psychology, and sports sciences.


Restriction of access to holdings in the library as of Tuesday, 11 April 2023

Due to fire safety measures, the Education and Sports sections in the basement of the library may no longer be accessible to the public. However, it is planned to move the holdings located there and make them directly accessible again. The literature in question can be ordered for the duration of the move.

In the course of the relocation measures, the library location will be redesigned. Despite the drastic fire protection regulations, we hope to keep the location attractive, to make the literature available for the subject groups on site and thus to meet the wishes of our users.

Our services

We are happy to assist you with any questions you may have about the use of the library and to assist you in finding and borrowing specialist literature.

We offer:

The majority of the holdings can be taken out on loan for a period of four weeks. The remainder can be taken out on loan for short period of two days or over the weekend (with the exception of periodicals, encyclopedias, and loose-leaf publications).
Literature not available at the Waldweg Library can be ordered by way of inter-library loan or document delivery services.

The Waldweg Library holdings can be researched in GöDiscovery and in its own catalogue. This catalogue is part of the Göttingen University Catalogue (GUK).
