Media Loan

Media from the collections of the University Library in building 35 can be taken from the shelves in self-service and should ideally be borrowed at the automated checkout machines.

Please note that access to the media issue points is limited to a maximum of 20 persons and is monitored at the entrance of the University Library by issuing 20 library baskets at most. Access to the University Library is therefore only possible if baskets are still available. Hence, use this option for brief stays at the University Library exclusively. For longer stays, please reserve a Reading Room work space.

Please further note:

  • Admission is limited to 70 persons max.
  • For access to the self-checkout area a mouth and nose protection is mandatory.
  • Before stepping into the University Library please disinfect your hands with the disinfectant provided by the University Library, as you will self-checkout using the touch screens of the automated checkout machines.
  • Please keep the safety distance of at least 1.50 m at all times.

Media Returns

Returning media is solely possible via the automated book drop in the foyer of building 35.
