In all three libraries you can find lockable Carrels. They will primarily be rented to BTU C-S students and research associates for writing scientific papers. This includes dissertations, master and bachelor theses or post doctoral theses.

Please observe the following rules when renting a carrel or a work cabin:

  • Media from the stock of the library, which is used in the carrel, must be borrowed before. The borrowing list must be displayed visibly. Exception: Present copies, rare and special stocks may only be used on an hourly basis in the carrel.
  • According to § 10 of the library regulations, the library is authorized to exercise the right of control in the University Library. Library stock which is deposited in a carrel but not properly borrowed is regularly cleared out.
  • Own notebooks may be used. However, the recording of speech or sound is prohibited on the central campus and headphones are mandatory.
  • It is not permitted to pass on the key to other persons or to use the carrels by other persons.
  • For safety reasons the door must not be locked from the inside.
  • Before leaving the carrel, switch off the lights and PC equipment.
