Delivery time: As a rule, the article will be dispatched on the working day following your request.

What can be requested?

As a rule, you can request chapters/articles from printed books or journals held by the bigger libraries. Some books held by branch libraries, however, may be unavailable.

At present the service is being offered for the libraries below:

  • Main Library
  • Technisch-naturwissenschaftliche Zweigbibliothek (Science and Technology Branch Library)
  • Wirtschafts- und Sozialwissenschaftliche Zweigbibliothek (Economic and Social Sciences Branch Library)
  • Erziehungswissenschaftliche Zweigbibliothek (Educational Science Branch Library)
  • Departmental Library 02: Law

For conservation reasons, it is not possible to request copies from pre-1870 books or from works in poor condition.

How do I place an order?
