University Library

Information on extended minimum operation

Minimum operation

The University Library currently offers an extended minimal operation in some of its branches.
Numerous rules have to be observed in order to comply with all regulations for the protection against corona, especially the distance requirement, the obligation of medical masks or FFP2 masks and the limitation of persons.
A daily corona negative test must also be presented (this is not necessary when collecting / returning the book). Alternatively, you can provide us with proof of your full vaccination or recovery.
