On basis of the Bavarian regulation for protection measures against infectious diseases access restrictions are currently everywhere. We, too, have to observe these regulations. Therefore, we introduce a booking system for seats in library.

If you want to make sure to get a seat, you should use the booking system. Of course, you can also access the library without a reservation for borrowing books at any time.

For each of the next seven opening days you can reserve a seat for one of three time intervals using the THIApp under the menu item "Library":

  • 10 am - 2 pm
  • 2 pm - 6 pm
  • 6 pm - 10 pm

You can make a maximum of four bookings of one time slot per day during the next seven opening days. You can choose between seats in the South Reading Room, North Reading Room and Gallery Reading Room.

The assigned seat number can be found on the tables, as well as on the posted floor plans.

Please note that our booking system currently is a beta version, which had to be developed very quickly. Should there be any malfunctions, please write an email with its description to Please also specify your operating system (version) and the error that has occurred.
