Login to the Online-Catalogue of the Library

The online-atalogue (OPAC) of our library offers you the opportunity to browse through our entire media collection from wherever you are: books, CDs, DVDs, magazines and other e-resources.

If you have a valid library membership, you can use your credentials to log in to the online-catalogue. The personalized use of the OPAC makes the following possible for you:

  • Viewing of all the media you have borrowed, including their return-dates.
  • Extension of the lending period for the media you have borrowed
  • Viewing of all the fines due for payment
  • Making of suggestions of media you would like the library to acquire
  • Giving direct feedback about the library collection
  • Viewing of all the media you have borrowed in the past.

What do you need to log in to the online-catalogue?

In order to use the personalized functions of the online catalogue, you need a valid library membership as well as a free registration on Mein

Here are three simple steps showing how you can activate your personalized use of the catalogue.

Furthermore, you can use your Mein account to access all other personalized online products of the Goethe-Institut from the language, culture and library departments.

If you had earlier registered on Mein, you do not need to register afresh. Simply proceed to step 3.
