Update: Reopening of the 24-hour library – 03.08.2020

On Monday, August 3rd 2020 we will re-establish 24-hour access to the library.

PLEASE NOTE: You will need to register again!

In order to access the library, you will need to re-register for the 24-hour library:

You can do this online by selecting “My settings” (Meine Einstellungen) in the Campus System and choosing “24-hour library” (24-Stunden-Bibliothek) from the menu.

When re-registering, you will also be asked to indicate your agreement to the following provision:

For the duration of the Corona pandemic, applicable Covid-19 prevention regulations for the use of the 24-hour library must be observed without exception.

 

Please register at least one day ahead of the first planned use of this service. User accounts are only activated once a day, at midnight.
Wheelchair users are kindly requested to contact our staff at the circulation desk after registration.

 

During the 24-hour library, the following procedural rules as well as distance and hygiene measures apply:

  • Before entering the library, please use the disinfectant dispenser (outside the entrance).
  • Including the PC work stations, there are roughly 130 reading and work stations available.
  • During your stay, we recommend that you wash your hands regularly and thoroughly (soap and disinfectant solution are available in all sanitary facilities).
  • A safety distance of at least 2 metres must be complied with everywhere in the University Library.
  • The minimum distance, as obtained by seating arrangements in the study areas, must not be changed.
  • Tables and keyboards must be disinfected before use by every user (disinfectant solution and tissues are available in all reading rooms and in the entrance area).
  • Only one person per copy room; only half the book scanners are operating to guarantee minimum distance.
  • Only one person at a time is allowed to use the lift.

 

Thank you for your cooperation.
The team at the University Library is looking forward to your visit!

Update: partial restoration of services (loan, surf@ubk, inter-library loans, return)

on Monday, 04.05.2020, the University Library takes another step towards the restoration of its services for all user groups (AAU members and external users):

 

  • The online search engine surf@ubk will be fully active again on 01.05.2020: it is possible to order and reserve books. As the reading rooms are still closed, a new service is offered: books from the reading rooms (“open shelves” and so on) can also be ordered and reserved via the search engine surf@ubk.
  • Inter-university loan is activated again. Books from other universities can be ordered using the corresponding online form. Please note that a quick processing of orders depends on other libraries’ willingness/readiness to forward items.
  • Ordered items can be collected starting Monday, 04.05.2020, in the entrance area of the library after you have received an email confirming availability.
  • Media can be returned again at any time, but exclusively via the return kiosk outside the entrance to the library.
    (Inter-university loans and other items not accepted by the return kiosk can only be returned to a table near the loan desk during opening hours.)

 

Until further notice, shortened opening hours:

Mon, Tue, Wed, Fri 12:00-15:00, Thu 15:00-18:00

 

When picking up items, please comply with the following hygiene and safety measures:

  • Only one person at circulation desk.
  • The use of protective face masks is compulsory when entering the buildings and the library.
  • Please keep your distance when waiting on “bridge” (pay attention to markings on floor).
  • Please hold up your student card to the glass panel of the first desk.
  • Your items will be handed over.

 

Until further notice, the special borrowing conditions apply:

For students and external users, up to 6 items can be borrowed from the open shelves until June 9th, 2020. Items in other locations can be borrowed as usual. The borrowing conditions for people with extended borrowing rights still apply.
