Information for Library Users - How to Place an Interlibrary Loan Order

Works that were published abroad and are not existent in German libraries can be ordered via International Interlibrary Loan (ILL).

In order to do so, you have to place an order by means of the Freie Eingabeformular (free input form) of our research portal for a fee of 1.50 €, in case your search there was unsuccessful. If our subsequent research reveals that the title you are looking for is indeed not available in Germany, we will ask you if you would like to place a fee-based order in a foreign country. Only after confirmation and a positive transaction the actual charges will be inscribed in your account. Books are generally provided for in-house use only.
