University Library closed for maintenance for one day

Routine checks on Thursday, September 16, 2021

Freiburg, Sep 14, 2021

The University Library (UB) Freiburg will be closed for the whole day on Thursday, September 16, 2021, because of maintenance to technical equipment. The routine annual checks include the fire alarm system, the elevators and other technical equipment, as well as the power supply. There will also be a siren test, and the building loudspeakers will be checked.

Satellite libraries open, online services available as normal

The tests have to take place on a regular working day as this offers the ideal conditions and technical personnel are also rapidly available if necessary. In order to minimize the nuisance for users as much as possible, the management of the University Library has selected a date in the summer holidays. On that date, students can use the University of Freiburg’s satellite libraries which are open, subject to coronavirus conditions, for their studies. The university library’s online services will also be available during the tests.
