In Need for a Working Space?

Starting today, we present four new working spaces with temporary furniture available. There are two large work spaces for small groups and two small, in which two people can work on a library computer. This should serve in the future for learning language.

The new working spaces can be found in the upper reading room behind the CIP-Pool.

Empty shelfs in upper reading room

Empty shelfs in upper reading roomPerhaps you’ve already noticed it? In the upper reading room you find empty shelfs more and more. What’s behind all this? What do we plan?

The TUHH library is always in transition, like its surroundings. More than 70% of the budget for media are spent for digital ones. Instead of many shelfs, which offered printed books in the reading rooms before, only the shadows on the carpets are left over today.

At the same time you like the library as learning place with its comfortable working atmosphere. Because of this we plan to arrange further working places as alcoves around the rotunda. So we will remove further shelfs to improve the quality of our working spaces and to allow a more convenient sense of space within the library.

In the next weeks a lot of books will be moved and shelfs will be reduced. For any trouble which might occur we hope for your comprehension.

Access to upper reading room

Fahrstuhl-AusfallMurphy at work :-(

The stairway to the upper reading room is closed this week because of carpeting works. Unfortunately our elevator between levels has more or less stopped working. Please follow the signs for a detour via the office stairway.

Unfortunately the upper reading room can therefore only be opened between 9 am and 6.45 pm.

The stairs should be open again by the end of the week.

Closing of upper reading room

Riss in einer Wand

The TUHH library will use the time of the christmas closing to let the upper reading room to be partially plastered and to be cleaned afterwards. Because of this, the upper reading room will be closed from Friday, December 20, 2013, until probably Thursday, January 9, 2014.

Access to the CIP-Pool working places in Room 1005 as well as to the group work rooms won’t be possible in this time. In case of rapid work progress the upper reading room will be opened again earlier.

In case you want to lend or read a medium of the upper reading room, you have to order it via the catalog. Books ordered during the service hours (Mon to Thu 9 am – 7 pm and Fri 9 am – 6 pm) – but think of the Christmas closing – can be picked up half an hour later like the orders from the closed stacks. Books ordered after that time, will be available at 9.30 am on the next opening day (except for Saturdays) and can be picked up at the circulation desk.

We apologize for any inconvenience!

Maintenance work in reading rooms from 04-09-13

From Wednesday 04-09-13 the required replacement of smoke detectors will be carried out in our reading rooms. Low nuisances because of construction works will be unavoidable.

At that time also the regulation of the elevator in the reading room will be renewed. Please note that during the fortnightly reconstruction the elevator will not be usable.

We hope for your understanding!
