The following generally apply:

  • Please lock up bags, jackets, and other items in the lockers, and remove them at the latest before the Media Center closes.
  • Smoking, eating, and drinking are not allowed.
  • Be considerate to others - speaking on the phone, or any other noisy activities, should be avoided.
  • The Media Center is not a lending library. Selected (and clearly marked) media, especially those for the preparation of presentations, are available for a brief loan, meaning overnight or over the weekend. A loan is only possible if the user has a chip card (student ID) and fills out a registration form (see above).
  • Please present any books, magazines, etc. that you bring into the Media Center.
  • Instructors’ semester materials can only be used for copying. Please put all of them back.
  • Holdings are freely accessible to all users and must be used in the individual work areas. Open access holdings should be placed on the book cart after use, or given to a staff member.
  • All media are secured against theft; when you check these items out at the Student Information Desk, you will pay a deposit to unlock the materials, and then they will be locked again when you return them. Please do not put them on the shelf yourself.
  • The computer workstations are available to all students, with preference given to language-learning activities. Private files can be saved on a USB stick. It is imperative that copyright law be observed.
  • Video and DVD workstations are also available to everyone without restriction. Please pick up and return remote controls from the Student Information Desk. Headphones are available at the workstations.
  • Further information is available in the user regulations document (see above).
