Opening hours and service
The University Library is still open for access to collections and study environments but with limited opening hours: Monday – Friday 10am – 4pm. Library personnel will staff the information desk during the entire opening hours. Please help us to reduce infection by only visiting the library if you are fully healthy.
The Study Support Centre has replaced regular drop in hours by distance services using Zoom. If you have any questions or would like to make an appointment, please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
Booked search guidance will be also carried out via Zoom:
For students who are in need of audio literature due to reading impairment, introductions to Legimus are provided through Zoom.
Loans and renewals
At the moment students will not receive many recall notices concerning return of expired loans, unless a book is reserved by someone else. If you receive a message, try to renew the book online first. Reserved books still have to be returned as usual. During most of the day, the access card enables students and staff to access the facilities of the University. Outside the library you will find a book return box (the public has access between 7am and 5pm Monday – Friday) where books can be returned. Books can also be returned by post.
You can send someone else to pick up books which you have reserved or interlibrary loans you have made. The person you send has to present the library card and/or the identity card of the person who placed the request. The person who collects the item must also show his or her own identity card.
