Course reserves

At the beginning of the lectures, we set aside course reserves of literature or films (DVD/Blu-ray) for specific courses at the request of lecturers at the University of Freiburg. These titles are withdrawn from normal library circulation during the semester. At the end of the lectures, the books/DVDs are checked back in and made available for lending again.

The course reserves are located in reading room 1. Films are available for use on site in the Media Centre (3rd OG. Parlatorium). They can be used at the counter of the Media Service.

To apply for a semester package in the summer semester 2024, please send the completed list by 15 march 2024 to

You can add the following media to the course reserves:

  • All borrowable holdings of the UB.
  • A placeholder is set up in the course reserves for reading room collections of the UB. The volumes remain at their location.
  • E-books of the UB are referenced with a placeholder in the course reserves.

For reasons of space, a maximum of 20 titles can be included in the course reserves.
