Borrowing and Returning

Lending periods and renewals

The items of the Branch Library of German and Scandinavian studies can be borrowed for four weeks at the self-checkout machines on the ground floor. If there is no reservation, the loan period can be renewed to a maximum of up to 84 days.

Periodicals, complete editions, encyclopaedias, reserve and reference collections as well as items published before 1920 are excluded from that service.

You can renew the loan of borrowed items in your user account at home or at the self-checkout machines in all our libraries.
