Accessibility for People with Disabilities

Information Regarding Acessibility

The SLUB Dresden Central Library is designed to be accessible to library users with disabilities. Specifically designated work stations are available in the public areas, and are clearly marked.

The bookshelves in the open stacks are placed far enough apart as to make this area accessible to persons in wheelchairs as well.

There are accessible restrooms and elevators on each of the three floors of the Central Library.

A total of 6 lifting desks are available in Level 0 and Level -1. At these work tables you can adjust the height individually.

The railings in the stairwells are equipped with braille markings to aid mobility of our visually impaired users.


Wir bieten Ihnen die Möglichkeit ihre Freihandtitel und Magazinbestellungen am Blindenarbeitsplatz oder wahlweise an der Servicetheke bereitzulegen. Hierfür genügt es die recherchierten Titel und die SLUB-Nutzernummer uns mitzuteilen.

Physical Access for Disabled Users

Parking spaces for the disabled are located left of the gate at the SLUB parking lot.

The barrier-free entrance to the building is clearly marked.

Our security personnel will be happy to assist you and help you find your way to the accessible public areas of the Central Library.
