How to register an account
The use of our computers and scanners is free of charge. Students, employees of the university and external users of the library over the age of 18 are allowed to make use of the PC-pool. In order to do so you have to register an account at the main information desk or at the information desk of the PC reading room. Just fill in an application form and bring your library card. With this you automatically accept the library regulations (unfortunately only available in German) – especially the clauses concerning electronic data processing.
After your registration you can use the computers immediately. Please note that you are responsible for backing up and storing your data yourself. We encourage you to use your own storage media (e.g. USB flash drive).
You can use all computers which are part of the PC-pool for up to four hours per day. You can divide your daily working time on the computers flexibly.
