Covid-19 Update

New regulations according to the 14th BayIfSMV

According to the recently published 14th BayIfSMV the 3G-rule will apply if the 7-day-incidence exceeds 35.

From Sunday, 05.09.21, persons who want to enter the reading rooms of the University Library (UB) must prove that they have been tested, vaccinated or recovered.

When entering the reading room, please show the corresponding proof without being asked. To facilitate control, a digital version of the proof (e.g. via mobile app) would be perfect.

This regulation does not apply to employees of the University of Regensburg and to pupils who can present a pupil ID card.

FFP2 masks are no longer mandatory. Wearing a medical mask is sufficient in all areas of the University library, including reading rooms. If the minimum distance of 1.5 metres is maintained, the mask can be removed at the workplace.


Note for external users:

According to the current regulations, masks can only be removed at the workplace if a minimum distance of 1.5 meters to other persons is reliably maintained.

In order to enable users to work at the reading desk without a mask, as requested by many, especially by students, the UB has decided to continue the designation of reading desks with the minimum distance and therefore in limited numbers.
The opening hours for external users will therefore remain in place until further notice.


Service for students from risk groups

Please note: This service is aimed exclusively at students who, for health reasons, are currently unable to visit the reading rooms to use the reading stations or borrow books due to the risk of infection with the corona virus.

For students from at-risk groups, books ( a maximum of five books from the reading rooms) will be checked out of the reading rooms by library staff and made available centrally on a specially set up shelf at the entrance to the contact-free lending area in the Central Library.
Students from at-risk groups are asked to send an e-mail to ausleihe.ub@ur.de and indicate which books (please include the shelf mark) are needed from the reading rooms.

For students from risk groups, a limited number of individual work booths are also available in the Central Library. Students from at-risk groups are asked to contact ausleihe.ub@ur.de by e-mail and specify the period of time during which they would like to work.
