Library as a place of learning
For many, the library is a popular place to learn, study and work together. A diverse, spacious and technical offering supports the wide variety of working situations:
Two reading rooms provide quiet individual workstations and are supplemented by nine group work rooms (one is reservable), two copying rooms with multifunctional devices for printing, scanning and copying, two chill-out areas and research stations; these are also for external members.
Carrels (personal office in the library), caddies (mobile office in the library), PC workstations and a
PC pool with software (PDF) for the relevant faculty are available to students of the THI.
Is a Caddy available?
Books can be loaned for 4 weeks. University members can extend the loan of every medium that has not been reserved by another user of the library by 4 weeks up to five times via their account in the catalog; external members can do this twice.
You can return media by using the terminals at the information desk or by using the 24/7 return box. It is located on the southern side of the library building near by the main entrance.
In the library, there are two terminals by the main entrance and another terminal by the student entrance, which you can use to loan and return your books by yourself.
Reserved media or inter-library loan orders are ready for collection on the shelves in the lounge area. You have between five and ten working days to collect your media.
In the lounge there is a coffee machine and a snack machine with cold drinks. In cellar you will find another coffee machine and a water dispenser.
Unfortunately, we have to issue a reminder (subject to a charge) for media, which are not extended or returned on-time, in accordance with §18 of the General Rules for the Use of Bavarian State Libraries (ABOB). Cost of the 1st reminder: €7.50
The student entrance, emergency exits, the self-collection shelf and the ServicePoint area are under video surveillance outside service hours.
