Sorting centre North Rhine-Westphalia

The sorting centre NRW supports the libraries of the interlibrary loan region NRW in sending books and copies of articles. The affiliated libraries have the possibility to forward all books and copies of essays that are to be sent by interlibrary loan to the sorting centre. There (usually within 1-2 working days) the fine sorting and the dispatch to the addressees takes place. This procedure saves postage and rationalisation for the affiliated libraries.

Information on German interlibrary loan can be found on the website website of the interlibrary loan centre for the interlibrary loan region NRW at hbz (Hochschulbibliothekszentrum).
