A reservation system for the workplaces is to avoid unnecessary waiting times from 30 November onwards. Employees and students of the University of Erfurt will then be able to book one of the 200 designated workstations in the library in advance (electronically) using thoska and login. A workstation can be reserved for a maximum of four hours in advance, extensions are possible, as are changes and cancellations of bookings. Workstations with and without terminal are available.
Gabor Kuhles, director of the library: "In view of the noticeable increase in the number of visitors in recent weeks, we hope that this will help us to counteract foreseeable 'peaks' and 'traffic jams', and that the distribution of workstations will be more balanced for everyone".
