Coronavirus - Our current services for you

When organizing our services, we consistently keep your needs in mind. Your health and that of our employees are also important to us. That is why all steps to return to regular opening hours and operations are accompanied by hygiene measures and other measures to prevent infection. Due to the ongoing restrictions, we ask you to continue working and learning from home if possible and to give preference to the digital offers and services of the ThULB.

Overview of our library locations

All locations have reopened, thus providing direct access to the media inventory. All media borrowing services including registration and de-registration as a library user and the information services are available. The number of study spaces is limited, so reservations are required in advance. Please be prepared for waiting times.

Punctual return or renewal of your borrowed media

  • Since 2 June 2020, the regular reminder fees for overdue items are once again incurred. If applicable, check whether it is possible to renew the items in your user account and contact the Central Loan Desk in the main library building or the branch libraries if necessary.
  • Since all locations have re-opened, we ask you to return borrowed media to the respective branch libraries where you borrowed them.

Ongoing restrictions

  • All on-site training, workshops, guided tours and public events are cancelled. On the page "Digital Semester", you will find information about online training courses.
  • Group study rooms and book trolleys cannot be rented either. If you have rented a trolley or study room and have questions, feel free to contact us. Please use the contact form of the respective branch library.

Digital offers for working from home

We have compiled offers for working from home on the page "Digital Semester".

We are at your disposal for advice

If you are planning to visit the library, please take note of the following:
  • Refrain from visiting the library in case of illness—especially if you have flu-like symptoms such as cough, pain when breathing and fever.
  • Wearing a face mask within the building is mandatory (It can only be taken off at the booked study space).
  • A minimum distance of 1.5m must be maintained.
