Renewal and Return

How to Extend the Loan Period?

You may extend the loan period of your media twice via your account if no other user has requested them. Extension requests can also be made using our contact form, by e-mail, by post or by phone.

The extension period begins the day you trigger the extension, not on the termination date of the loan period that has already been granted to you.

Please find more information on your user account in our SLUBcast.

Return of Borrowed Items

If no longer needed, please return your media at the self-service return machine at the Central Library or at the service counter in one of our libraries.

Returning borrowed media is possible at all SLUB locations. At the Central Libraries' self-service return machine you can return media all troughout the overall opening hours. You are also welcome to return your media at the service desks, but these are only manned during the service hours. It is not possible to return musical notes with loose inserts as well as audio media and videos at the self-service return machine.

It is also possible to return borrowed meda by post. Please send the media to the following adress:

Sächsische Landesbibliothek - Staats- und Universitätsbibliothek Dresden (SLUB) Ausleihe, Zellescher Weg 18, 01069 Dresden

Please note when returning by post: you are responsible for the media until they were returned in the library. The receipt stamp of the SLUB post office is binding for us as return date.

Returned media are automatically discharged from your account. Please retain your return receipt for future reference.

Media borrowed via interlibrary loan have to be returned at the Central Libraries' service counter.
