Returning media made easy with the automatic return machine

In the foyer, opposite the café, there is a new return machine where borrowed media can be returned quickly and contactlessly.

A student or library card is not required when returning items.

The media must be inserted individually. The titles booked are confirmed on the touchscreen and the respective library account is immediately credited. Returns can be acknowledged with a return receipt if required.

Interlibrary loans and large-format media are excluded from the return process.
These must be returned to the circulation desk on the second floor. It is also still possible to return all other borrowed media at the circulation desk.

Wardrobe & Bags / Food & Drink

Before entering the reading rooms, please lock jackets and coats as well as bags, backpacks and the like in one of the lockers on the 1st floor.

Our new baskets can be used for transporting work materials and books.

Before using the lockers for the first time, the student or user card must be activated at the circulation desk.

The lockers are locked and opened with the student or user card and are only intended for the duration of the stay in the University Library.
They must be vacated daily, no later than the closing time of the University Library.

Although there is a café and a self-service coffee machine on the ground floor, eating and drinking is not allowed in the library.
Water in transparent, sealable bottles is excepted.

Discover the new university library

How mapongo helps you find your way around and find books fast!

Welcome to the new university library! The new library is an impressive building that offers many possibilities. But it can also quickly become overwhelming to find your way around it, and especially to find the locations of needed literature.

That’s where mapongo comes in: the orientation guide for our library. The building visualization allows users to virtually experience the library and better orient themselves. The 3D views are designed to give an overview of the three reading rooms, shelf locations, different types of workstations, carrels, and more.

In addition, mapongo will facilitate the search for individual media. The location of the media you are looking for is directly linked to our library catalog. By clicking on the link “Shelf location”, mapongo will display the shelf area of the media you are looking for.

mapongo is a company from Cottbus and is one of the renowned providers in the segment of 3D building information systems.
