How to borrow books on the self-service terminals (video with English subtitles)




There are two self-service terminals opposite the information desk where you can borrow books and other items.

Select "Ausleihe" on the screen, hold your CCA in front of the card reader and then place the media on the marked area.

To end the borrowing procedure, press the "Fertig" (finish) button on the screen. You will be automatically issued with an receipt including the loan period.

In addition to this, you can view your library account and renew the loan period through these terminals.

Your orders, reservations and interlibrary loans are available at the information desk.


You can't borrow journals and reference media (books with a yellow label on the spine).



There is a self-service terminal for returns next to the library entrance. It operates 24 hours a day.

During our regular opening hours (Mo-Thu 9am - 6pm and Fr 9am - 4pm) it is also possible to return items at the information desk on the first floor of the library.
