Fair use

We provide you with the best possible working conditions at the NTNM Library. We rely on fair treatment of each other and fair use of our space, media, and services. In order that all of our users feel comfortable, we ask that you heed a few fair use rules during your time in the library:


    Most of our visitors appreciate the silence which enables them to work with concentration in our library. When you are in the reading areas of the library, please keep your voices down so that others are not disturbed.

    Learn together

    Learning also includes exchange and discussion. This is exactly what our group workrooms are available for. Therefore, please do not occupy them individually, but only use them when you want to work and exchange ideas together with others.

    Text books

    One of our top priorities is to provide textbooks in sufficient numbers for all students. Let us know if you find that there are too few copies of a particular title. We will remedy the situation before books are hidden, hoarded, or even “hijacked.”

    Food and Drinks

    Drinks and a small snack are permitted in our library. Please be considerate and make sure that you do not cause any odor or noise nuisance for others. Please leave your workplace just the way you would like to find it.
