New access regulations to the university library

President's circular to all employees and students

Dear colleagues,
Dear students,

As Covid-19 infection rates continue to be high, university management is readjusting access to the University Library. The following is effective from Monday, December 20, 2021:

  • Contact data collection via the traffic light system will continue to apply to all visitors without exception. In addition, a security service will carry out the following checks at the entrance:
  • For all visitors (including those borrowing or returning items), the obligation to provide proof of 3G applies. This means that proof stating whether you have been fully vaccinated, have recovered or have tested negative for Covid-19 must already be presented at the entrance. University employees are exempt from this requirement, as they must already prove their 3G status to their superiors.
  • Non-immunized students of the University of Tübingen are admitted with a negative rapid test, issued by an official testing station and not older than 24 hours. Non-immunized students from other universities are asked to present their student ID and a negative rapid test from an official testing station as well. The company CeGaT offers free testing in the entrance of Clubhaus cafeteria and in the foyer of the Mensa Morgenstelle. https://www.cegat.com/diagnostics/corona-diagnostics/corona-rapid-test/

Persons who are not immunized and are neither students nor employees of our university will be granted access only with a negative PCR test not older than 48 hours.

The previous seat ticket system no longer applies.

With these regulations, the university wants to ensure the safety of the staff and all users of the university library.

Thank you for your understanding and your cooperation!

With best regards,

Professor Dr. Bernd Engler
