Timetable for the transitional phase

The switch to the new library management system is slated for August 14, 2023. There will be a few weeks of restrictions and changes to services at the Bonn University and State Library (USL) as we transition from the old to the new system. You can find a schedule for all the restrictions during the transitional phase on this web page.

Please factor in these restrictions in good time.

Some dates and arrangements have yet to be finalized; this web page will be updated on an ongoing basis. We will also be providing details of all the steps in news items and on our Facebook and Instagram social media channels.

The following will remain available at all times:

  • Literature searches in our bonnus search portal
  • Access to electronic media (e-books, e-periodicals and databases)
  • Use of workspaces during opening hours
  • Consulting the reading room collections on the premises
