The situation

You have ordered a work from the stacks, put a hold on a book, or placed an interlibrary loan request and the desired work is now available for you at the University Library.

Where can I find the reserved media?

In the collection areas of the Lending Center, Ammerbau or Morgenstelle. The shelves are sorted according to a collection code. Special colelections are made available for you in the Manuscript Reading Room.

How can I borrow the reserved media?

You can simply take your reserved media from the shelf and borrow them via the self-service terminals.


The Ammerbau collection area generally contains works that cannot be borrowed home and are only authorized for use within the University Library.
