The door connects the Library to the main corridor at the -2nd floor of the Study Center and can be found next to the Parking area. This additional entrance operates for limited hours while the main entrance stays open7/24. You can use this door from Monday to Friday, 08:00am - 8:00pm.

Library users are kindly requested to be quiet while both entering or exiting the Library from this door, as it is near the open study places.

The door will be monitored by cameras for security reasons.

A Blind Date With a Book!

A Blind Date with a Book!

Users of the Health Sciences Library were expecting a surprise on February 14th… A blind date with a book! It might seemed strange at first, but it was a very pleasant activity. At first, we put the books we chose in the gift packages, then we wrote short notes with information about the books on the packages and the books were ready to meet their readers.

On February 14, library users chose the right “match” for them and after they left the Library, they spent February 14 reading a mysterious book…

Take a look at the evidence of this love affair from here.

Love can be found everywhere! 😉
