  • To use the library, log in via the JGU app when you enter - the corresponding QR code is posted on the library's entrance door.
  • The 3G rule applies in the library; please note that you will need to carry proof of full vaccination, recovery or a recent (lecture or daily) PCR test.
  • There are usable workstations marked on the tables in the library. Please only use these places and otherwise keep a distance of 1.5m from other users.
  • The previous hygiene rules will continue to apply.
  • The lending system is suspended; all volumes are again reference stock. Books/magazines may be taken to the photocopier in the foyer on the ground floor during opening hours. After use, they must be returned to their place on the shelf. Volumes marked with a red dot may not be copied.
