Library services during Corona

On this page you will find information about the services provided by the ISS Library due to the current Corona measures.

We have 23 study places available (5 with PC access), for which you have to register in advance with your ERNA account. Please be aware that no reservation means no study space. You have to sit at your assigned desk (blocked desks are marked with tape).

Please stay at home if you have symptoms of a cold or the flu. Face masks are required in the Library, also when seated. Always keep 1.5 meters between yourself and others.

 

Reserving your study space in the Library

With a study space reservation for the Library you can also use the photocopiers to copy, print and scan.

The Library is open on workdays for returning and collecting your books. Check our current opening hours. This service is available to anyone with an EUR student card or a valid library card. Please stay at home if you have symptoms of a cold or the flu. Face masks are required in the Library, also when seated. Always keep 1.5 meters between yourself and others.

Request your books via sEURch. We have made your visit to the library completely contact free to ensure your health and safety as well as that of our colleagues. 

Collecting and borrowing books

  • Request a book before 9.00 via sEURch and it will be ready for pick up the same or next workday: Check our current opening hours;
  • If you've placed a book on hold, come to the Library after you have received notice that your books are ready for pick up. Collect the book from the book carousel next to the information desk;
  • You can collect your books up to 7 days after receiving the notice for pick up.
  • Books can also be taken directly from the shelves
  • Use the self-checkout machine next to the information desk to borrow the book.
  • Books can only be collected by showing your library or student card; without your card borrowing books is not possible.

Returning books 

  • Return books at the self-service book return next to the Library’s information desk; or immediately upon entering the ISS building by leaving your books on the book cart
  • Returned books may not be processed for a few days due to safety reasons, which means they will still be on your name in our system during this time. For example, when your return books on Monday they may be removed from your account on Wednesday. You will receive a confirmation of this transaction.

Borrowing from other libraries

It is possible to use interlibrary loan to borrow books from another library.
