We are happy to enable university members to use reading and workstations in the University Library again. For now, we can provide a limited number of reading and workstations at some locations, which however need to be booked in advance.

Currently, the departmental libraries of Babelsberg/Griebnitzsee and Golm each provide about 60 workstations, the library at the Neues Palais provides about 20 workstations.

Booking information:

At the moment we can only accept a maximum of 2 bookings per person and calendar week. As our capacities are limited due to current distancing regulations, we reserve the right to cancel multiple bookings of a single person if there is a high demand of workstations. If you need to change plans and you are unable to use the booked workstation, please cancel your registration using the cancellation link provided in your confirmation e-mail, so that the workstation is available to other persons.

As there is only a limited number of workstations available and we are obliged to collect personal data to trace possible infection chains, the use of reading and workstations is only possible if it was booked the day before.

By booking a workstation you agree that the University Library may collect your personal data (surname, first name, email address) to manage the booking of workstations as well as to trace possible infection chains. You also agree that the library may store this data for a limited period of time - up to four weeks after the use of the workstation (SARS-CoV-2-EindV of the State of Brandenburg from 15 June 2020). After this period, the data will be deleted immediately. In case you cancel your booking, your data will be erased automatically.
