Students preparing their final theses can again come to the library


Starting from Monday, 12 April, a limited number of persons will be allowed to study in the UT Library reading rooms. This opportunity is particularly meant for the students who are writing their final theses and need the materials that can be used only in the library. People who have rented private work rooms, can again use them.

“Students who are writing their final theses and need books and other materials, available only in the library, have contacted us about their problem,” said the UT Library director Krista Aru. “Therefore, we decided to help them as much as possible in this difficult situation. However, we ask you to come to the library only when it is absolutely necessary and in other cases, to use our contact-free services.” The materials that can be used only in the library have to be pre-requested via the online catalogue ESTER.

From next week, up to 100 persons can use the five reading rooms on two floors of the library. The real time number of visitors present in the building can be seen on the library’s website.

From next Monday, group work rooms can also be booked online, but you should take into account that, no matter how large the room is, only two persons can use it at the same time.

Books can still be borrowed contact-free. Books requested via ESTER will be available for picking up in the Smart Lockers in the library lobby on the next workday. You can also find the books you need in the open collections and use the self-checker to borrow them.

Printing and scanning service and the authorised work station are still available in the lobby.  

Until the end of restrictions, there is no access to the computer room, dining room and sports and recreation area.  

The reading rooms of the library are open on workdays from 12-19. All people who come to the library must wear a mask, keep a safe distance with others and disinfect their hands when entering the building.  

With questions, call 737 5772 on workdays from 9–17. Inquiries can also be sent to, and
