Loans and books requests

At the entrance of the Library you will find a helpdesk with staff at your disposal. Furthermore, the helpdesk is the place where to ask and check out your books.

The Library is a reference library and its holdings are stored in closed stacks. There is no free access to the items, neither in the reading areas nor in the storage rooms.

No book, periodical or other library material may be removed from the library until the prescribed loan form for it has been completed, signed and handed in at the delivery desk. An external loan is not permitted.

There is a copier located in the Library. Copy cards are available at the reference desk. Any person making use of the photocopying facilities of the library shall comply with current law on copyright.

The requested materials will be brought directly from the stacks following your order and handed out at the delivery desk.
