Current regulations

  • Use the Luca app or the tablet on display for access registration (paper forms can be provided on request) and disinfect your hands at the entrance.
  • Only absolutely necessary personal items may be taken into the library. Eating and drinking (with the exception of water) is prohibited in the library rooms. Cloakroom lockers are available.

  • Information services, guided tours and training cannot be provided.
  • The obligation to wear medical mouth-nose protection does not apply to persons who cannot wear mouth-nose protection due to a physical, mental or psychological impairment and who can credibly prove this by presenting a medical or psychotherapeutic certificate. The certificate must be carried at all times and presented when requested. At the same time, those persons relying on a certificate shall carry proof of complete vaccination, recovery or a negative corona test result (rapid test or PCR) not older than 48 hours and present it upon request.

Workstations in the ZHB

Group work is currently not permitted!

  • It is recommended to continue wearing a mask at the workstations, even if the distance of 1.5 m is observed.
  • To use a workstation, you need a book basket from the ZHB. You should leave it at the workstation when you have finished your work.
  • Workstations with a book basket may no longer be used. The workstations on the ground floor and basement remain locked.
