Library closed: online services continue

12 March 2020
corona virus

Due to the corona virus, the Central Medical Library (CMB) will be closed until and including April 28. This also applies to the CMB Silent Study Areas.

Borrow & return books

It is currently not possible to borrow or return books at the CMB. Of course we do not charge fines for late returns during this period. If you wish, you can return library books via the Bookbox outside the University Library City Centre.
Do you urgently need a specific book? Let us know and we will try to get it as an e-book.

Online services

All online services will continue as usual. You can call or email us and it remains possible to request journal articles from other libraries.
