Workplaces and Equipment
LUL offers a large number of desks in different learning and working environments in its locations. You are free to choose your seat in the reading rooms, no prior seat booking is necessary anymore. In all branches of Leipzig University Library, there is an obligation to wear a medical mouth-nose protection as soon as the minimum distance of 1.5 meters cannot be maintained. However, there is a strong recommendation to wear a medical mouth-nose protection or a FFP2/KN95 mask without exhalation valve on all traffic routes. For digital contact tracing we use the free Corona-Warn-App, the libraries are equipped with corresponding QR codes.
Computer workplaces are available in all branch libraries. Due to divergent infrastructure different kinds of logins have to be considered.
Combination of library number and associated password. It is necessary to change the default password in your library account in order to use our computer workplaces. About an hour after changing it, logging in should be feasible. Please mind that after a replacement of your library card or reset to default password a new one has to be set.
