Freely accessible library holdings

Beginning on Monday 1. 6. 2020 the study room is open to public from 9pm to 5am Monday to Friday. The number of seats is halved in order to keep social distance. Visitors are required to cover their nose and mouth with a facemask and to disinfect their hands before entering. More info »

The freely accessible library collection is a collection of books and journals located directly in the study. Users may use all documents from this collection on-site with a valid membership and visitors with a valid one-day pass, independently of the staff of the LASCR and without making a loan request. Users with off-site membership can loan selected documents from the freely accessible book collection, which are labelled on the spine by a white mark with black lettering. All loans must be put through a self-check machine located next to the information desk near the exit.
