Borrowing via self-service kiosk (Test in June 2019)

Dear Klagenfurt University Library users,
Dear Klagenfurt University students,

 

For a couple of years now, you have all had the chance to borrow media from the reading rooms yourself at the two self-service kiosks.

This service is in particular demand when the circulation desk is closed.
During the circulation desk’s opening hours, use of this service fluctuates.

 

To focus our service and to improve the quality of personal service at the circulation desk, we are going to do a test in June 2019:

In June, all users wanting to borrow media from the reading rooms (open shelves, media library, textbook collection, i.e. media that can be borrowed at any time and by anybody) are asked to do this exclusively at the two self-service kiosks! – Please use this service also during the circulation desk’s opening hours.

 

Of course, the circulation desk staff are happy to help you with any problem.

 

Thank you for your co-operation!

 

Kind regards,
Your Klagenfurt University Library team

Electrical installations in the reading rooms (noise on May 27/28 and June 05/06)

Dear Klagenfurt University Library users,
Dear Klagenfurt University students,

In the coming weeks, the reading rooms in the central building will also be fitted with emergency lighting. This requires electrical installations, and we are hereby informing you of when and where to expect noise:

 

Periodicals reading room (level 2):
Monday, May 27
Tuesday, May 28

Reading room (level 3):
Wednesday, June 05
Thursday, June 06

 

Reading rooms and shelves are accessible as usual.
All the same, we recommend to use other rooms.

We hope that these restrictions don’t interfere with your work and that the noise level will remain at a minimum.
We also hope for your understanding!

Kind regards,
Your Klagenfurt University Library team

Restructuring of the library’s staircase (no access to the periodicals reading room, February 2019 – March, 15)

We have just been informed that restructuring of the library’s staircase is about to start.

Background: we want to reduce the noise on Level 2 to minimalize disturbance in the reading rooms.

 

After restructuring, all users will be able to access Level 3 without crossing the reading rooms.

At the same time, the fire doors’ mechanism will be adapted to reduce automatic opening.

 

For this reason, there is no access to the periodicals reading room from 04.02.2019 until Mar, 15!

 

This means that as of Monday, 04.02., there is no access to the tables, shelves and the media library in this reading room!

Please use other reading rooms during this time!

 

* All users can “order” and pick up any items located in the periodicals reading room at the loan desk.

* Daily newspapers can be found on Level 2 in the new building (“Cube”).

 

We hope that this measure affects you only marginally and rely, as always, on your underestanding.
