The SMART Board is a combination of computer and chalkboard. It can be best applied to promote cooperation in small groups. Files and programmes on your private laptop can be connected to the SMART Board via USB flash drive.

Laptop Carrier Bags
Laptop Carrier Bag

For security reasons the library doesn't permit to carry bags into the reading rooms. This regulation applies for laptop bags likewise.

In order to facilitate the transportation of your laptop including its accessories without your personal bag we provide free transparent, reusable carrier bags for the use within the reading rooms. A further benefit of this is that you don't have to line up at the circulation desk and present the content of your laptop bag anymore.
However, books, folders, briefcases etc. will have to be presented before leaving the library.
