Welcome to your Leipzig Library Guide

Welcome to Lancaster University Library! 

The purpose of this guide is to provide you with easy access to the Online Library resources, collections, services and support available to you whilst studying at the Leipzig campus. 

Start your search: OneSearch

Use OneSearch to search for books, journals, articles, DVDs etc.

Basic Search | Advanced Search 

This searches Full text online by default. You can change this to Books and more, Articles and more or Everything once you have run your search.

Logging into Lancaster Library Resources

To access any library resources, including OneSearch, the eBook collections or any of our databases, you will need to log in using your Lancaster University username and password. Should you not receive these credentials, or if you have questions regarding your account, please contact Sabine Gerlach and her Student Services Team at

If you are browsing the Web and find articles or eBooks that you want to read then you will need to log in to the that site you have found - bearing in mind that the library may not have a subscription.  You will need to look for links that are similar to:

  • Institutional login
  • Shibboleth
  • UK Access Management Federation

Choose Lancaster from any list of institutions and you will be taken to our local Web Login page where you use your Lancaster University username and password.

Please ignore any OpenAthens links as Lancaster does not use that service.
