How to use the library:

Books in open shelves ("open access rooms", German: "Freihand Raum") CAN NOT be ordered online - simply go to the library and take the book from the shelf by your own hand.

Books in closed stacks ("basement stacks", German: "Magazin") HAVE TO BE ordered online - you can collect these books on the following day. (Ordered books will be on hold at the counter for 5 working days.)

If a book is on loan, you can place a reservation online. You will be notified via e-mail as soon as the book will be returned. (Reserved books will be on hold at the counter for 5 working days.)

You can keep a borrowed book for a period of 28 days. It is possible to extend the loan if no other reader has placed a reservation.
