From Monday, August 16, construction work will be carried out in the Main Library for approximately 6 months. Work on the ventilation system is necessary and additional sockets will be installed in the reading rooms. FAU students have already cycled and walked for donations in 2019, and now their wishes for better electrification will be realised.
The construction work will take place in turn in reading rooms 1 to 6 and in the magazine, so there will be varying restrictions over the next few months.
Phase I: From 16.8.2021, there are no learning places in reading rooms 1 and 3 for about 2 months.
During this period and the following months, many learning places in other areas of the Main Library will also have to be closed. Some equipment and a part of the shelves including book stocks will have to be moved, but all reference and lending stocks are expected to be accessible throughout the construction period.
Please expect disruptions due to noise and dirt in the reading rooms. During this time, please pay more attention to further announcements as well as posters and notices on site.
We apologise for any inconvenience caused!
