Information for contactless booklending

Please respect the following regulations:

Due to the actual circumstances we still offer a contactless lending. Furthermore, due to the easing of the Corona requirements, shelf research is now possible again as well as learning operations.

For appointments and book orders please contact us via ( or by phone during our opening hours: 0241 / 80 93648. Don't forget to wear your medical mouth-nose protection any time you enter our institute.

1. Contactless lending to pick up pre-ordered books

Please contact us vis or by phone with the necessary informations (number of bluecard, your complete name and matriculation number) and the signatures of the books you want to borrow (for a maximum of five books). Please give us at least two appointments. We will then contact you for confirmation.

The books will be ready for you to pick them up. The loan period actually is one week. Thereafter, you have to pay late fees starting with 2 euros per book (see late fees). Please call us in time or send us an e-mail for renewing the loan period. Furthermore, we ask you to check your E-Mails regularly. As e.g. some of you like to borrow the same book, may be that we will reclaim the books earlier.

2. On-site library use

From now on the self research is possible again. Disinfectant will be provided on site. We ask you to wear your mouth-nose protections in the whole building. Appointments are no longer mandatory, but due to a better organization we kindly ask you to continue making appointments.

From April 4th, 2022, the learning places in our library can be used again under the 3G rule. The learning places can be reserved just like appointments for borrowing or shelf research by e-mail or telephone. We expressly ask you to make an appointment in advance in order to be able to comply with the distance regulations.

3. Book return

In case you only want to return books, you may come during our opening hours (see above) without an appointment.
