Items from the stack collection and interlibrary loans that cannot be borrowed as well as interlibrary loans of books and essays that can be borrowed will be provided to you at the reading room desk in exchange for a valid photo ID or your library card.
For items from the closed stacks the loan period begins with the day they are ordered. For items from the textbook collection and the open stacks it begins with the day they are checked out. Usually, the loan period is 20 working days (counting Monday to Friday). A shorter loan period of 10 working days (counting Monday to Friday) applies for certain media (e.g. journals). The loan period for books from interlibrary loan is set by the lending library. As different loan periods apply, please refer to your receipt slip for the precise due date.
Please note: Observing the loan period is your own responsibility. Please check your user account (in German) regularly and make sure to use the renewal option on time.
