How do I access the library account?

You can access your library account via the link Sign in in the Primo Knowledge Portal

Forgot your password?

In the registration form for the knowledge portal Primo you will find the link "Forgot your password?". If you follow the link, you can either enter the number of your library card or the registered e-mail address. You will then receive an e-mail with an individual link that you can use to enter a new password.

Alternatively, you can personally contact the Central Library's circulation department and identify yourself with your library and identity card.
