From 11/01/2021 onwards, we will be able to provide emergency lending and download services. In view of the dynamic infection situation and overall tense state of affairs, contact avoidance remains our top priority in terms of health and safety. The following therefore applies: Online first – obtaining information and resources off-site remains the ideal solution for the time being.
TU members are asked to please take advantage of the free scan delivery service SLUB on Demand where possible.
New registrations, SLUBCard renewals, advice and courses will also continue to take place exclusively online or by telephone.
Please find detailed information on our current services here.
SLUB emergency lending and download services - how it works:
Please check our opening times and book an appointment online if you plan to visit the Central Library. Access to the decentralised locations will be granted separately on-site. Contact information will be registered using the contact registration tool of the Free State of Saxony.
You can only stay a maximum of 30 minutes. This time limit is the same for all locations.
During your visit, items and some PC workstations on-site will be freely accessible to you. Please use the self-checkout machines where possible.
Wear a facemask during your stay and keep a sufficient distance from others at all times.

In order to make researching easier during the coronavirus crisis, some publishers and database providers have made their services more accessible (you can find an overview here). In order to give non-TU members access to our e-resources as well, ten PC workstations have been set up as “SLUB Data Filling Stations” (SLUB-Datentankstelle) and will be available for use in the Central Library from 13.5.2020. Our Digital Collections, sachsen.digital and the Landeskundeportal Saxorum also offer additional research opportunities, not to mention these useful services and tools for researching freely available full-text versions ("open access research").
We have and will continue to increase our range of e-tutorials: for example, Zitat statt Plagiat - Was, warum und wie zitieren?! (Quotation Instead of Plagiarism - what, why and how to quote?) is fresh from the oven. You can find a complete overview of our SLUB tutorials here.
