Libraries are closed from 20 March 2020

Safety precaution due to COVID-19 pandemic (last update: 3 April 2020, 11 am)

The loan period of your borrowed and not yet reminded media is automatically extended during the closing time by the period of the closing time. There will be no reminders during this time. There is no need for you to take action for extending your loan periods. Orders of interlibrary loans and media from other branches as well as reservations are currently not possible.

Please make use of our online offer! All BTU students and employees with a valid BTU account have remote access to our licensed e-books, e-journals and databases. For doing so, you have to login via Virtuell Private Network VPN first (video about VPN & configuration guide).

On the FAQ page of the BTU Cottbus-Senftenberg you will find answers to frequently asked questions (e.g. submission of compulsory copies of dissertations, acquisition requests and media orders).

You can still reach us by e-mail Bibliothek+Service(at) and by telephone (9 am - 4 pm)
