“Back to the future 2” – Results of our survey

On 1 March 2022, the University Library launched a short survey on the topic of desks, learning spaces and reservation options in the future.

A total of 150 people participated during the 10-day survey period. Thank you for your participation and feedback!

We received a clear response: the option to book seats is gladly used and 89% of the respondents would like to keep it.

Blue pie chart with the question "Should it be possible to book seats in the future?" 11% say No, 89% say yes.

When asked what amount of individual workstations should be reservable in the future, 41% were in favour of half of the spaces and 42% were in favour of more than half.

Blue pie chart with the question "What % of the seats should be reservable?" 17% say less than 50%, 41% say more than 50%, 42% say 50% of the seats should be reservable.

With regard to the learning spaces, a clear majority of 58% were in favour of the spaces remaining partially reservable.

Blue pie chart with the question "What option do you prefer for learning rooms? "11% say without reservation, 31% say only with reservation and 58% say seats should be partly reservable.

We will take your vote into account in our planning and preparations as soon as we can release more places and rooms.

We would like to point out that any future changes must continue to comply with the regulations for university libraries of the Containment Ordinance of the City of Hamburg “Eindämmungsverordung” – this also applies to the FFP2 mask requirement that continues to exist in the space.

“Back to the future” – workplaces and learning spaces in the future

Working place in the library

Dear patrons,

Since spring 2020, the course of the Covid19-pandemic has also shaped the opening times and services of the University Library.

Due to the respective containment ordinance (Eindämmungsverordnung) of the City of Hamburg, a limited number of learning desks could only be used by reservation during the last two years. Looking to the future, we now hope to be able to release further workplaces again.

We would also like to make an offer for the reservation of workplaces available on a permanent basis. In order to be able to include your wishes in our considerations and planning, we are now asking for your feedback within the framework of a short survey.

We will have questionnaires available for you at the ServicePoint and at the individual desks from 1 to 10 March 2022 – please place the completed questionnaires in one of the collection boxes at the ServicePoint.

After evaluation, we will inform you about the survey results here on our blog.

Thank you very much!
