Self-pick-up of open stacks print resources

Please feel free to use our open stacks areas on the ground floors of the 1st and 2nd segments as well as on the first floors of the 1st, 2nd and 3rd segments to pick up print resources shelved there yourself (Mon-Fri from 9 a.m. to 6.30 p.m. as well as Sat from 11 a.m. to 4.30 p.m.). Please note our information on the use of non-lending collections below.

Please observe our regulations and instructions:

  • A stay in these areas is permitted for picking up print resources from the shelves only. It is not permitted to stay for a longer period of time, e.g. for reading or working. You may, however, use the sanitary facilities in these areas (one person per facility at a time).
  • There are a total of 279 aisles between each pair of book shelves. Each aisle may be entered by one person at a time only. Time spent at the shelves should be kept as short as possible: Please leave the aisle and the open stacks area quickly picking up your book.
  • If you would like to take the book you have picked up home with you, please have it registered at our Service Counter (provided it is available for circulation).
  • If you would like to use non-lending collections, please note that their use is limited to the individual workstation area on the ground floor of the 3rd segment and is subject to prior reservation of a workstation via our online reservation system. This also applies to the use of daily newspapers (location: ground floor of the 2nd segment).
