Opening Hours without Service

During the opening hours without service you have the ability to work, read and research in our library. Printers, copiers and PC workstations are also freely accessible.

Media that you have ordered (magazine orders, holds, interlibrary loans) may also be picked up.

Checking out or returning media is only possible to a limited extent:

  • Checking Out Media: Media may be checked out with the self-service system.
  • Returning Media: Media may be returned on the first floor at the service desk. However, these materials will be booked the next business day. This day will count as the return date. Media returned in such a way cannot be immediately checked out again.
