Library use for research purposes after pre-booking via ULB system
Our library re-opened on August 5. You can reserve a seat in the library via the ULB seat reservation service. Bookable time slots are Tuedays, Wednesdays and Thursdays 10:00-11:30, 12:00-13:30 & 14:30-16:00.
An overview of the workplaces in the library can be found here (library floor plans, © Michael Erwig 2020, for Book Studies/WWU).
You can reserve one time slot per day and two per week. Bookings can be made up to 7 days in advance.
Short-term vacancies can be booked “last minute” from one hour before the start of the reservation, even if you have already exhausted your allowance of one reservation per day or two per week. If you are not able to take advantage of a reservation, a cancellation is possible; if you cancel up to 24 hours before the start of the reservation, you can use this “time credit” on another date.
In order to use the seat reservation service, you need a valid ULB user card. For more information on the system, see the ULB pages.
When you arrive at the library, please disinfect your hands before undertaking anything else. Please lock your jacket and bag in one of the available released lockers. Then identify yourself to the supervisor with the ULB user card that was provided when the reservation was made. Alternatively, you can use the “Self-Check-in” function on your smartphone shortly before the start of your booked time slot. You will receive information on this in the confirmation e-mail after the reservation.
Please observe the following rules onsite – we need to work together to keep the library as open and accessible as possible!
When entering the library, please use the disinfectant provided to clean your hands.
Please use only the reserved seat. The redistribution of chairs or exchanging seats with other people is not permitted.
Please wear a non-medical mask whenever moving about the library (on the way to your seat, in the corridors and stacks, on the way to the restrooms). You do not have to wear a mask at your reserved seat.
Please observe the usual rules of hygiene (distance of 1.5m, hand hygiene, sneezing into your elbow, etc.).
