Welcome Internationals!

Dear all,

we can imagine that arriving in a foreign country with different people, culture and language can be quite a challenge.

We would like to make your start in Germany, the language and the region around Bad Honnef more easy for you. Therefore we created a special collection including books about Germany, books and journals that helps you learning our languageΒ  and offers brochures to get to know our region.


In addition to this, we are planning a few other things, we will keep you posted. Until then, if you have any question, please ask.

A quick feedback would be really appreciated.

Kind regards,

have a nice weekend,

your Library and Information Services Team

New copy machine

Dear all,

I hope, you’ve had (and still have) a pleasant time on campus and enjoyed the free time during Easter.

I’m happy to announce that the library has added another “Ricoh” to the copy machine family.

Copying, Printing, Scanning…should be fun.πŸ˜‰

Kind regards,

have a really nice weekend (remember, the library is open every day!),

your LIS team


Dear all,

after working very hard during the semester break, I’m happy to announce a few changes:

  • we could add nearly 20 new working spaces in the library, so more of you are able to work at the – now – 149 working spaces! Hurray!
  • this semester we will open the library as a testrun also on every Sunday (not on Easter Sunday of course)! How is that?? So every visitor counts! => We will start in two days, Mr Koopmann is looking forward to meet you all!πŸ˜‰

As many of you know, we could assist you in the past with our campus card, in case you hadn’t the time to recharge it. But, unfortunately, our workload has increased significantly (not only because of the copy card of course), so we need to remind you that it is your responsibility to make sure that your campus card is charged if you want to copy.

If you don’t know, where this is possible:

During the week, there is no problem to recharge your campus card in the cafeteria, the Dallmayr CafΓ© & Bar, the Anno restaurant and Charly’s Lounge. So please make sure that you do in time for the weekends.

So have a great start (back) on campus and don’t forget to have fun!πŸ™‚

Preparing for the upcoming semester

Dear all,

for all of you who’ve expected the library to be very quiet and without students – you are (nearly) right. Of course, a few very hard working students are still learning in the library. And – more importantly – a very busy library staff.

Yes, we could just lie back and relax – but we want to spend you a warm welcome when the next semester begins. Therefore, we’ve cleaned the shelves, organized the books in the right order, sorted older books out to get more space for new books. Furthermore, we’re checking if new editions are available (this takes time).

A quick visit to the library might be a good choice if you want to take a look at the books we’ve sorted out. They can be picked up for free at the information desk.

From now on, if you have questions, we can double our screen of the information desk to the front monitor, so you can see what we’re explaining in a very comfortable way.

And, you might be thrilled: we’re changing the positions of the tables so we’re able to add new tables for additional working spaces in the library. You’re happily invited to test it in a few days and give us your feedback.

As always, if other things come to your mind, we have an open ear for your needs, thoughts and are looking forward to help you.

For you, who are already arrived in Bad Honnef and right about to start your study at IUBH, me and my colleague Mrs Schwedhelm are going to visit you during the orientation week to give you a quick overview of our library services and our library collection.

Until then – have a good start in March!

Kind regards,

your LIS team.

Best wishes for 2016

Dear all,

we hope that you’ve had a pleasant time in the holidays and didn’t miss the library (& staff) that much.πŸ˜‰

For 2016, we’re looking forward to continue our good working together.

As always, if you have any recommendations for the library collection or the library service, please let us know.

We’re doing our best to offer you our support for your study.

Kind regards,

your library team.
