Usage Notes

We strive to ensure a pleasant and congenial atmosphere at the Pharmacy and Nutritional Sciences Library with plants and comfortable chairs. However, we are NOT a cafeteria or an Internet café.

Therefore, please do not talk loudly, eat, drink or smoke at the Library – or do you want to find coke and ketchup stains or burn marks in the books and periodicals?

In addition, the other users at the Library will not be happy if you use your mobile phone or if they hear a loud ring tone coming from your backpack or bag.

Furthermore, we kindly ask you to dispose of waste and waste paper (poor copies, etc.) in the available waste bins. Please act responsibly and do not leave your waste on the floor, at the study spaces or inside the lockers. The other library users will appreciate this.

Please contact our employees at the information desk if you have any problems with the (manual or computer-aided) literature search, using the PCs, copying or printing. We are happy to help.

Please use the computers at the computer rooms of the ZID if you need further PC applications (MS Office, image editing, etc.).
