Wi-Fi at the SBB

Registered readers of the Staatsbibliothek can use the WiFi service, which provides access to various licensed databases. As we want to provide an uncomplicated access to our network there is no encoding of the Wi-Fi
To connect to the SBB Wi-Fi you must:

  • Connect to WLAN Portal
    To connect to the SBB Wi-Fi, view the available wireless networks on your device and select ‘WLAN-Portal’. Once you have connected to this network, the WLAN-Portal with further information will open in your browser. If the WLAN-Portal does not open automatically, please visit wlan-support.spk-berlin.de to be redirected to the Portal.
  • Change your password
    To use the WiFi Service you must change the default password for your library account. The password must be a minimum of six characters in length and must contain at least one letter, one number and one special character. Please wait approximately 30 minutes for your password to be updated. (It is possible to change your password at any of the terminals in the reading rooms).
  • Having Problems?
    If you cannot connect to the SBB WLAN, please do not hesitate to contact us at our information desks for additional help.
    For WiFi-problems that are more complicated, we also offer WiFi-Consultations at Haus Unter den Linden and Haus Potsdamer Straße.


It is possible to print files using the SBB WLAN. The service is provided by our in house copy service BiblioCopy. Further information can be found directly at BiblioCopy.

You may take your laptop, netbook or other portable device into the reading rooms – power sockets are available at the workstations. Please note that you may only bring clear plastic bags with you into the reading rooms – laptop bags are prohibited.
