Quieter working areas
We expanded the reading room on the ground floor to all fingers to reduce noise exposure not only on the ground floor, but also on the floors above. New group work spaces on the first and second floors are shielded acoustically from the adjacent reading room areas.
New individual and group work spaces
On the first floor, 35 additional carrels and a “Room of Tranquility” are available for you. One carrel is equipped for the needs of wheelchair users. Please book these carrels, funded by tuition fees, through the online reservation system that you already use for the Learning and Study Building. Additionally, there are new group work spaces on the first and second floors. On the ground floor, a large working area of 350m² offers around 70 workspaces with 20 PCs.
Göttingen University's students can book one of 85 lockers for a few days via eCampus. We use the same system as for the reservations of rooms in the Learning and Study Building (LSG). Lockers with the numbers "SF 001" to "SF 028" are located on the First Floor, lockers "SF 029" to "SF 085" are located on the Second Floor. Booking a locker in the Central Library and in the Learning and Study Building at the same time is not possible.
We still provide lockers used with keys for other users of the Library. Please contact our colleagues at the Information and Service Desk on the Ground Floor. As long as one of the left-over lockers on the First Floor is available you may get a key for 30 days.
Improved climatic conditions
The glass roof in the entrance lobby was replaced with a new, thermally efficient glass roof. Thus, the lobby is kept from the cold and drafts. At the same time, fire prevention measures were updated.
New lounge areas and common rooms
We provide new lounge areas with comfortable sofas in the gallery areas of the first and second floors for your breaks. In addition, we provide a parent-child room.
One-stop shop services
We provide a central, enhanced reception and service counter area on the ground floor, replacing the distribution of service counters on the ground and first floors. The self-pick-up area is integrated into this area for your convenience.
Improved Wi-Fi and new PCs
We offer more Windows-PCs on all floors and new standing-desk PC-workplaces with guest-logins.
Thanks to 50 new Wi-Fi access points, we can provide you with improved Wi-Fi access and higher speed in all our public areas in the Central Library.
Advice for private and guest users: Instead of “GoeMobile”, formerly available in the Central Library, we now offer you a Wi-Fi SSID called “GuestOnCampus”. Please use “GuestOnCampus” with the user name SUB-Usernumber@guest.uni-goettingen.de and your password for your printing and copying account.
