Library card for students of Paderborn University

Students of Paderborn University receive their library card as a combined Student-ID- and library card from the Student Service Center.

Activate library card

Newly enrolled students need to have this card activated in the library (registration desk) once only.

Library card number

Barcode number on the library card, beginning with PS.

  • 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 '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

All personal data in your library account is taken care of by the Student Service Center. If changes are required, please contact the University's Service Center. Thus, your university e-mail address is automatically stored in our library system; it cannot be changed. However, you can initiate forwarding to your private e-mail address via the IMT user administration.

Lost your library card?

Please report the loss of your combined Student-ID- and library card to the University's Service Center and also to the staff at the registration desk in the library so that your library account can be blocked to prevent misuse by third parties.

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.
