About using the libraries

When opening the library, we follow national, sector-specific and university-specific safety guidelines. Following the instructions of the University of Arts, it is not allowed to come to the campus if you have a fever, flu- or stomach symptoms, or any potential corona-related symptoms. We take into account security distance and hand hygiene for safe working and visiting the library.
