Is it compulsory to wear a mouth and nose cover (MNB) in BTU buildings?
Yes, in public parts of BTU buildings (entrances, corridors, tea kitchens, etc.), masks are mandatory at BTU. Everyday masks can be used. In addition, masks are mandatory (everyday masks) in working areas where the minimum distance of 1.5 metres cannot be maintained and other measures (separation protection, etc.) cannot be applied.
Use of the University Library during the Corona Pandemic
How can the staff of the University Library be reached?
Can I return media to the University Library by mail?
Yes, that is possible:
BTU Cottbus-Senftenberg / IKMZ,
Platz der Deutschen Einheit 2
Lipezker Straße 47
Please note that the media check-in can only be made once the library is accessible to staff again.
Is it allowed to enter the university despite the order of the presence change and in which period of time are the buildings open?
As a rule, BTU buildings at all locations are only open to a limited extent during the period of alternating attendance. Working hours on site must be coordinated with the supervisor and documented in the faculty's occupancy plans. This is the only way to ensure that contacts can be traced quickly in response to requests from the health department.
Special regulations apply for securing and maintaining the IT infrastructure, for securing laboratory tests etc. or for securing real estate.
How are compulsory copies of the dissertation submitted?
The library is still accessible for you. Please find the current opening hours directly on the pages of the library. Electronic publication via our digital repository is still possible without any problems. However, printed copies can only be submitted by prior arrangement.
Information on publishing can be found on the homepage of the University Library.
How can acquisition requests or media orders be placed?
Please place e-book orders as usual with the specialist responsible for you. After the desired e-book has been activated, you will receive information from us by e-mail.
Orders of printed books for handsets are possible. However, even now you are not allowed to order without consulting us, since we often benefit from library discounts and we want to acquire literature as cheaply as possible. Therefore please contact your department first. We will then inform you about the further procedure.
The library can also acquire printed books again for its stock. Suggestions for acquisitions can again be submitted to your subject librarian as usual.
How is mail distributed during online operation and how do I get access to mail and incoming parcels?
Please note that during the online operation phase, you will primarily use digital means of communication (especially e-mail) for internal and external correspondence.
External mail addressed to BTU is received centrally at the post offices in Cottbus and Senftenberg. During the online operation phase, incoming mail will be sorted centrally in the post offices and mail addressed to the respective areas will be opened and scanned by specially committed employees. The scanned mail is then sent as a PDF file by e-mail to functional mailboxes in the respective departments (e.g. faculties). From there, the digital mail must be forwarded to the relevant departments.
If a scan is not readable, please contact (0355) 69-3459.
Parallel to the scanning operation, the original letter post items are taken to the mailboxes of the buildings once a week on Friday. The weekly distribution of BTU's incoming letter mail from the mailroom only serves the purpose of not creating a stockpile of paper in the mailroom or sports halls.
External outgoing mail can be deposited in the two mailboxes of the central post offices in Cottbus and Senftenberg. These will be franked and, as known, handed over to the German Post Office.
Special regulations apply for personally addressed mail according to the valid postal regulations. This mail will not be opened by persons under special obligation. Rather, the persons addressed will be informed about the receipt of the mail and informed about the possibilities of collection.
Parcels are also accepted centrally and are not opened. The respective addressees of parcels are informed about the parcel in question. In the case of urgent and perishable goods (e.g. chilled goods) a handover can be organized. The parcels are stored centrally and safely until delivery.
The internal post office exchange between BTU locations takes place twice a week on Tuesday and Thursday. This is where, among other things, book transport for the libraries is secured.
There is no messenger service or lateral distribution between the organizational units. The familiar electronic channel should be used here.
