Dear visitors,

starting on Wednesday the 23.06.2021 the INEF-library will be open to the public again. Every Wednesday between 10.00 and 15.30 our staff is on site and offers you the possibility to access the library.

The following rules apply to all visitors due to the ongoing pandemic:

- It is not necessary to schedule a previous appointment for your visit of the library

- However, no more than one visitor at a time is allowed inside the library

- Wearing masks is mandatory

 - Visitors are required to leave their contact information to trace possible infections

Because the library offers very limited opening-hours, it is still possible to ask the staff for scanned copies of urgently needed literature in limited amounts. Please contact the library staff at the e-mail address below.
As the INEF library is a presence library, items cannot be borrowed.

Please send requests by email to:

Stay healthy!

Your library team
