Starting on June 4, 2021, workspaces and other services on site in Libraries and Computer Labs are offered. You will need to make reservations in advance and show proof of a recent negative Covid-19 test. The current regulations on lending services with little physical contact and online services will remain in place.

News from Jun 04, 2021

Due to the necessary hygiene measures, the number of available workspaces is limited. It is therefore necessary to register in advance to use this offer. For logging in, Freie Universität students use their FU-Account (formerly: ZEDAT-Account). External users can log in to the libraries using the regular Primo library login (see also Login, Account).

Users may only use the designated areas (e.g. reading rooms, PC pools) with an FFP2 mask. The mask must also be worn permanently at work. As a FU member you can also book computer workplaces in the ZEDAT-PC-Pools.

How it works

  • The submission of a negative corona test, which is not older than 24 hours, is a prerequisite for the reservation of a desk at the library. Fully vaccinated and convalescent people are asked to show their vaccination card or a medical certificate of recovery (see §6b of the 2nd SARS-CoV-2-Infektionsschutzmaßnahmenverordnung). For identification purposes, please also show your ID card.
  • To book a desk you need your FU account data. Your personal data is only visible to you and the system administrators. The data is used exclusively for contact tracing and the traceability of chains of infection in the event of a SARS-CoV-2 infection and if it should occur in the temporal or local context of your visit and the data will be deleted after four weeks.
  • You will get a confirmation for your desk booking via e-mail which you have to produce (in print or on your mobile phone) at the library circulation desk.
  • Please cancel your desk reservation if you can’t make use of your desk booking. For a cancellation please use the link above.
  • Please wear a FFP2 mask in the library and keep distance to other people.
  • You will find surface cleaners and disinfectants. Please make use of them.

Self-tests are not accepted as evidence.
