Activation of the time slotes:
We offer separate morning and evening appointments for the General Reading Rooms and the Newspaper Reading Room. Activation takes place daily at 9am for the morning appointment and at 2pm for the afternoon appointment, in each case two days in advance (currently also for Monday and Tuesday).
For a visit at short notice, you can book a time slot that have become available, or contact us directly on site.
You do not need an appointment to borrow books outside the library, to return books or to register.
If no more dates are displayed for a period, they are unfortunately already fully booked.
If this takes longer than a few minutes, please contact us.
