Lending Services

To borrow items, you need a valid library card. You receive your library card at the Main Library/lending service once you have presented your student ID card or an official photo ID card.

Usually, you can borrow books from the Art History Library over the weekend (Friday to Monday, please return them by 12:00). If multiple copies are available (e.g. shelf mark: Handb├╝cher-123/a), books can be borrowed for up to 28 days.

Please take the books from the shelves (do not forget to fill out a replacement slip) and bring them to the information desk.

Items that may not be borrowed:

You may not borrow lexicons, handbooks, dictionaries, bibliographies, periodicals, items from semester reserve collections as well as rare books and folios. Please see the relevant details on u:search.

If you fail to return books by the due date, we charge you with a reminder fee.

Please note: For organisational reasons, you can only borrow books until 20 minutes before the Library closes.
