From 22nd to 26th of March, the University Library at the Central Campus will be closed.

Unavoidable construction work for the renewal of the smoke extraction system in the IKMZ at the Central Campus will force the University Library to close for regular use.

Unfortunately, the work can only take place during the last week of exams. During this time the library can only offer limited services. The use of the reading rooms is not possible. The university library will offer workspaces in Cottbus-Sachsendorf . The service in Senftenberg will remain as usual.

In order to support the students as best as possible during the time of the exams, the library is setting up the following EMERGENCY SUPPORT:

  • The entrance area of the building can be entered, urgently required literature can be borrowed
  • Please send borrowing requests in advance to bibliothek+ausleihe(at)    
  • Short-term requests for a few books will be gladly accepted on site.
  • The return of media is possible via the return box.
  • Interlibrary loan orders can be placed and picked up in the entrance area

In addition to the workspaces at the other library locations, temporary workspaces are available in the cafeteria at the central campus.
