Library card for members of the public

Library card for members of the public

Members of the public (e.g. citizens from the city and region of Paderborn) receive their library card at the registration desk.

Apply for a library card

You should bring the following with you when registering:

  • a completed application form
  • your ID card
  • a certificate of residency from the registration office if you are a foreign citizen
Library card number

Barcode number on the library card, beginning with PE.

  • The default password is your date of birth, as DDMMYYYY (if you were born on May 3, 1991, for example, your password is: 03051991). In your own interest, please change the preset password as soon as possible.
  • Change password
    Via the library catalogue you can access your library account and change your password there.
    The new password should have at least 6 characters.
  • Forgot  your password?
    If you have forgotten your password, you can reset it in the library catalogue via 'Mein Bibliothekskonto'/'Ich habe mein Passwort vergessen' ('My library account' / 'I forgot my password'). Alternatively, you have the option of having the standard password (your date of birth) entered at the registration desk by showing your library card.
Change address and e-mail

Please have your new address updated at the registration desk in the library. You can change your e-mail in your library account via the library catalogue

Lost your library card?

Please always immediately report the loss of your library card to the staff at the registration desk so that your library account can (initially) be blocked to prevent misuse by third parties. If you have lost your library card or if it is damaged, you can have a new one issued for a fee.

If you have any questions concerning your library card, please note the service hours of the registration desk. Please also note the Paderborn University Library Regulations, which you undertake to comply with when applying for a library card.
