  2. Click on the "Library account" button.

    • A pop-up window will open.

  3. Log into your user account - either as a member of the university with your HFU card
    (Step 5) or with your guest card (Step 6).

  4. To log into your account as a member of the university, select "yes".

    • All students, professors, lecturers and members of staff are members of the university.

    • Register with your HFU account.

    • Your HFU account is the account with which you register in webmail or FELIX.

  5. If you have a guest card for the use of the HFU libraries, answer the question about membership of the university with "no".

    • Register with the number of your guest card and your password.

    • The default password is your date of birth in 8-digit format.

    • You can change the password and your email address in your library account.

  6. Now you will get an overview of your library account.

    • Renewal of books is not possible until 7 days before the end of the borrowing period, if the medium has not already been requested.

    • Please make sure that the return date has actually been changed.
