  1. The library of the faculty of physics and astronomy is a reference library that primarily serves students and employees of the faculty to support their studies, research, and teaching.

  2. Book loans are only possible after registration. Borrowing books requires a valid student ID card or, for faculty employees, a library ID card that can be applied for at the Info-Counter daily from 8:30 - 15:00.

  3. Long-term loans from the monography inventory are only allowed "in house", i.e. for employees and students that work at the faculty. The loan period is 8 weeks. In order to ensure the character of a reference library, the books should remain in the offices or labs within the building.

  4. Students not being employed at the faculty are allowed to borrow books from the textbook collections (labels L and LL). The loan period for books with label "L" is 4 weeks and for those with label "LL" it is one term. All other books can be borrowed for one week.

  5. Users have to fill the registration card of a book (if not labeled "LL") and place it instead of the book at the latter's location on the shelf.

  6. Excluded from loans are journals and those books labeled with a red dot. Only those journal volumes containing review articles or conference proceedings can be borrowed "in house" for a maximum of one week.

  7. Users from other faculties with a university address can apply for a registration according to point 2.

  8. The lab library can be used by all participants of the physics labs of the faculty. The loan period is 4 weeks.
