Mask obligation

Tuesday, 19. April 2022


As of today, FFP2 masks are once again mandatory for all time spent in the library, including while working at the desk. Our reading rooms are intended to be available for everyone, also to those who are particularly at risk, so thoughtfulness is important to us. We want to provide a high level of protection for everyone, because you can only learn productively if you feel safe.

This arrangement also allows us to offer more seats again. As of now, our group study rooms Banach, Hilbert, Sobolev and Krylov on the balcony are available again.

3G proof is no longer required to visit the libraries. Nevertheless, we ask everyone to remain responsible and cautious, and to stay at home in case of symptoms and suspicion of infection with the Corona virus.



Sale of books and T-shirts

Tuesday, 01. March 2022


Currently, books and T-shirts of the former research center MATHEON are available for purchase in our Mathematics Library for a donation of 2,-€ per piece. From the "Matheon" the Berlin Mathematics Research Center MATH+ has emerged in 2019. Part of it is also the Berlin Mathematical School.

125th anniversary of the death of Karl Weierstrass

Saturday, 19. February 2022


125 years ago today, on February 19, 1897, the famous mathematician Karl Weierstrass died in Berlin. On the occasion of the anniversary of his death, we are showing a small exhibition in our reading room. Among other things, there are original transcripts (handwritten!) from his lectures in the 1870s. At that time, Weierstrass taught mathematics at the Königliches Gewerbeinstitut, which later became the Technische Universität Berlin. His collected works and biographies are available for browsing. And then there's Weierstrass's monster...



Access for external guests

Monday, 17. January 2022


Those who do not study at the TU Berlin can also work in our reading rooms. Either with a free library card issued by the University Library (link to application form) or with our own "GreenCard procedure". This requires filling out a paper handout with contact information each time you visit. Check-in is then done through assigned numbers. Important for each visit are further a 3G proof (vaccinated, recovered, tested), a medical mask (FFP2 recommended) and a deposit for the locker, e.g. a student ID from another university.
