Tomorrow, Thursday, 22.03.18, the offers at the Windows pool computers in the library will not be available all day due to maintenance work! This concerns the Windows pool workstations in the upper reading room, as well as the workstations in the group workroom (room 1005) on the upper floor. We apologize for the inconvenience.
Time for something new!
If you have wishes for the library, then two wishes are guaranteed:
- I would like to work in peace and quiet.
- I want a lot of room for group work.
For this reason, since summer of 2016 we have opened four new group workrooms on the first floor of our library. The furniture is now to be improved by tables and chairs that you would like.
Also the furniture in the reading room will be renewed and expanded. Please help us to choose the new furniture and test them!
We invite you to take a seat, test, compare and choose the very best.
Please use the questionnaire to comment. Thank you!
If you like to work quietly and concentrated in the library, then you should definitely join our carrel test: After a single workplace, a so-called “workbay” has been tested in a group workroom, we now offer two models for comparison.
Take a seat starting from Tuesday 16-05-17.
We plan on using the carrels as a room-in-room installation in a group work room or in the reading rooms. They are intended to promote concentrated individual learning and working.
You are cordially invited to inspect, try, compare and to give feedback …
You are welcome to fill out our questionnaire next to the installation (only a few questions!) or just leave a comment here!
On Wednesday 18-01-17 the University library will not open before 10:00 am because of maintenance works concerning power supply.
We hope for your understanding.
On next Tuesday library staff will enjoy their annual outing. The University Library will be opened from 8:00am to 9:00pm, but we can only offer restricted service from 9:00am to 3:00pm.
Checking in and out of books will be possible during the opening hours as well as paying fees at the fee machine.
We will make a trip to Hansestadt Stade.
Due to Maintenance Work the CIP-Pool will remain closed for the whole day on Thursday 17-03-2016. The closing will include both – the Pool in Reading Room II and the Pool in our Room 1005 upstairs. We apologize for any inconveniences.
It is planned that a new “Gebührenordnung für wissenschaftliche Bibliotheken” (Scale of fees for scientific libraries) will take effect April, 1, 2016. This scale will be passed by the Senate of the City of Hamburg based on the Hamburg Law of Fees.
Important innovation will concern – above all – those of you, who do not return media in due time or who do not extend the loans in due time.
Good news for you first: the survey of the fees will become more transparent. The reason: the fees will be booked to your account and are visible for you immediately, not any longer after return of media.
Within a few weeks the new fees will apply to you all over Hamburg in following differentiation.
In case of a request for return they will appear in your account immediately:
|First request for return||(1. week):||1 Euro|
|Second request for return||(2. week):||(2. week): 2 Euro (total 3 Euro/Medium)|
|Third request for return||(3. week):||(3. week): 5 Euro (total 8 Euro/Medium)|
|Final request for return||(5. week):||10 Euro (total 18 Euro/Medium)|
Please note, that you will have to pay 18 Euros per book, should you overdraw your loan period for five weeks.
As you see fees will change only by distinct overdrafts of the loan periods.
Speedy returning instead is in interest of all our users …
The “Gebührenordung” has to pass the political authorities in Hamburg. We will inform you, when it will get valid.
Your questions now we`d like to answer yet.
On Thursday 10-09-2015 there will be a staff meeting at TUHH. Anyway the reading rooms of our library will be open. Our services like staffed loan desks or information will be available for you at 12 am.
On next Thursday library staff will enjoy their annual outing. The Library will be open for you from 9:00am to 9:00pm, but all personal services like picking up reserved books, applications for membership or the settlement of fees as well as information services will not be available.
Of course self check services for reading room books will continue. Thank you for your understanding.
If you are interested we remain in the vicinity and explore Wildpark Schwarze Berge.
