For longer stays, visitors can also acquire a semester card by submitting the following documents:

  • A completed request form provided by the Library
  • A letter of presentation from your own University, certifying your affiliation
  • A passport-sized photograph

The cost of a semester card is 60 euro; for patrons of the URBE Network, 30 euro.
