Always return borrowed media at the information desk so that the book can be released from your user account.

When the library is closed, materials may be returned using our book drop on the ground floor (Achstraße, Wing C). Please note that a time delay will be booked to your account from the date of loan of the media.

Books that have been borrowed through interlibrary loan should not be returned in the book drop. Please return these items in person to the information desk.

In our open access library, you can only reserve media for loan that is currently borrowed via your user account. When the item you have reserved has been returned, you will receive an e-mail notification that it is now available at our information desk.

If the medium is not collected within the collection period stated in the e-mail, your reservation will be deleted.
