You can use the self check-out and return stations to easily borrow and drop-off books.

Self check-out is available to you around the clock:

  • in the Library Information Centre by using the four stations near the main entrance
  • in book area N.

You will need a library card and a PIN number to use this service. You can generate your PIN using your library account.

You may also return library media:

  • at two return stations outside of the library on B 4
  • at a station in the Library Information Centre
  • at the “Verbuchungstheke” (check-out/check-in counter) in book area N.

Most of the library’s media can be checked out at the self check-out stations. Loan period extensions are only possible when no other person has requested the media item.


  • Interlibrary loans

If self check-out is not possible, please contact the lending service in the Library Information Centre.
