How to order a book from the locations in the Theological Seminar Building?

Media from the Departmental Libraries in the Theological Seminar Building (01TH) can be ordered in the catalogue, if you choose the Departmental Library Political Science (05PO) as pick-up location, Kochstr. 4.

Since these libraries have not been lending libraries so far, the order can only be made via a “stack request” in the online catalogue.

  • Search for the title in the catalog and follow the instruction to open an additional catalog session in the individual display of the hit.
  • Then log in with your UB-ID and password.
  • Please fill in the signature field, enter the title and send the data.
  • Automatically you will be assigned to the pick-up location. Please confirm the pick-up location.

Please note that “stack requests” are only visible in your account after borrowing the item.
