Visitors of the learning centre are free to use the cloakroom on the ground floor. Work spaces in both library and learning centre are marked by numbers. Visitors are requested to use the work station indicated by their locker key number only. Please feel free to ask for your preferred seat at the information desk.

A social distance of 2 metres has to be maintained in all areas of both library and learning centre at all times. No eating and drinking in the library and the learning centre. Please keep all sanitary measures (desinfection of hands, surfaces and locker keys). We provide you with all sanitary products. The wearing of a FFP2-mask is mandatory in all areas of the library. At your work place you can remove your mask if you maintain the required social distance AND provide a "3G Rule" evidence (short for German "geimpft, getestet, genesen" - vaccinated, tested, recovered) which is used to define low-risk groups in epidemiological terms. 

If you cannot provide such document you have to wear a FFP2 mask at your work place. Please make use of our comprehensive collection of electronic ressources!
