Resumption of lending and return operations

Since Monday, 4 May 2020, you can again borrow and return books and other items at the Göttingen State and University Library.
In order to protect you and us all as best as possible during this time and to comply with the existing regulations for infection protection, we ask you to:

  •     Keep a minimum distance of 2 m inside and outside the premises,
  •     wear a mouth-nose cover when entering the premises and
  •     try to keep your stay as short as possible (max. 30 min).

The workstations will remain closed for use until further notice. We are working on making these areas accessible again step by step and will inform you about this on our website as soon as possible. We have compiled answers to the most frequently asked questions for you in our FAQ.

With the resumption of lending and book returns, we will also make it possible again to order via the Göttingen University Catalogue (GUK). We will also reactivate the options for online media renewals, reservation and reminders for overdue items. We have therefore extended the return periods once automatically for all accounts until the midth of May and ask all users to check their accounts and, if necessary, extend them further or return the media on time.

Returned items will remain in quarantine for two days and will only then be processed further. We therefore ask for your understanding if the discharge of your user account and the renewed provision is delayed.
