Help with Details Page

General information

In addition to the exact title data of a work, you will find detailed information about it, a preview image of its location and other functions on its details page. 
The information on availability per copy (applies to print materials) follows a uniform colour pattern:

  • Green: copy is in the open stacks area and can be borrowed/used immediately.
  • Yellow: copy is in the closed stacks area and must be ordered
  • Red: a copy is on loan or reserved and can be reserved.

What does open stacks (open access area) mean and how do I find the location of an item?

Open stacks/Open access area: These materials are freely accessible. You can take these items from the shelves yourself. Reservations/holds cannot be made for these items.

You can find the exact location of open stacks copies in our 3D model by either clicking on "shelfmark" or on the preview image of these buildings:

How do I order materials from the closed stacks?

You can order materials from the closed stacks online via the SLUB catalogue. You can see the current processing status of an order and the respective collection point in your online SLUB user account (see retrieving items from the closed stacks).

Items are available for collection for five working days.

A work is already on loan. How do I reserve it?

If all copies of a title are currently on loan, you can reserve up to 10 works in total. Click on "reservation possible", select the pick-up location and then press the "reserve" button. You can also see your holds/reservations in your user account.

You can find more information on ordering, borrowing and reserving on our website.

What do the statuses "ordered" or "in process" mean?

If you find a desired title in our catalogue without a shelfmark but with the acquisition status "ordered", then the title has been ordered from a retailer but not yet delivered.

After delivery, the copy will be processed at the SLUB.

After a few days you will see it in the catalogue with the valid location and copy information.

Can I export my search results to a literature management program?

Under the menu item "Reference Management", the export formats RIS (Research Information System Format), BIB and ENW (Endnote Tagged Format) are available for selection.

Further information can also be found on our webpages Reference Management and Data Export (Datenübernahme aus dem SLUB-Katalog). 

How do I save interesting titles?

Similar to a shopping basket function, catalogue entries (short titles) can be saved as favourites in a watch list.

This watch list can be edited, printed, sent, permanently saved with an SLUB login or deleted.

Do you have any questions about search results in the SLUB catalogue?

We are happy to help you. Please contact our service team in the library or write to us and include the permalink to the specific title.
