The University Main Library is undertaking building alterations for you

from September 2020 to spring 2021

In order to provide our users with contemporary library services with learning opportunities that meet today’s requirements some alterations and renovation work will be undertaken from September 2020 to spring 2021. In addition, lending services will be upgraded with RFID technology so that items can be borrowed and returned during the library’s opening hours, independently of the lending desk’s opening hours. Renovation work will take place from September 2020 to spring 2021. The building project has been planned and will be managed by Schröer Sell Architekten.


Temporary restrictions

Use of the University Main Library is guaranteed during the entire construction period. For the areas affected by the renovation, such as lending services, information centre and ITSC-PG2 (IT support), provisional locations will be organised. These temporary locations and diversions will be signposted throughout the building. The open stacks and journals stacks will be closed to the public from 25th August to the end of the year 2020. Items can be ordered via the catalogue and can be collected from the lending desk (temporary location: ground floor, Room 008.2) after receipt of a collection notice.
