On both sites we offer you the possibility to register for a library card and to order items to the reading rooms of the Staatsbibliothek.
For each request you can select between the sites Unter den Linden and Potsdamer Straße, as long as there are no special restrictions. However, only items which readers order to the collection area at the site Potsdamer Straße can be taken home. Find out more about the loan restrictions for special literature.
Our staff at the issue desks provides you with information on registration and your library account (e.g. updating address information, resetting your password, etc.). They answer questions about your orders and reservations and they check if further renewals are possible. Besides they are your contact partner if you wish to use our research service (e.g. research trolleys, permanent lockers, carrels, etc.).
At our issue desks you find self service machines where you can pay charges and fees by cash or debit card.
