Opening hours are currently restricted - until December 23 exclusively from Monday to Friday from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m.. The background to this is that the University of Erfurt - like all other (public) institutions - is called upon to save energy due to the tense energy situation. The library would also like to make a contribution to this. "At the same time, it is our task to reliably ensure the supply of literature for studies, teaching and research," explains Gabor Kuhles, the Director of the university library. "We currently have to operate in this area of tension. After consulting with the university's internal planning group on the energy emergency, in which the student council is also represented, we have now jointly found a solution that attempts to meet both requirements - energy saving and service."
