TIB as university library

As a university library, TIB ensures the supply of literature for Leibniz Universität Hannover (LUH). Our services are primarily aimed at students, lecturers and researchers at LUH, but are open to all interested users.

New at the library?

A library card is required to use the TIB. The LeibnizCard (student card of Leibniz Universität Hannover) or cards from other HOBSY libraries can be used as library cards.
