The library is intended to be a place for learning, exchange and working together. This idea becomes tangible in the well-thought-out room concepts: By means of different learning areas - from interactive to quiet zones - different types of learners and learning styles are addressed. Visitors may choose from a total of 600 individual and group work stations. There are even training courses as an aid to using the LIV.
