Interlibrary loan


  • Media will usually be delivered to the University of Konstanz within one to two weeks.
  • We will notify you when the material is available for pick-up at the lending service desk or the reading room.
  • You can pick-up the media until its return date.
  • Media is usually loaned out for a four week period, but each library sets its own return dates.
  • If it is possible to extend the return date, you will receive an automatic extension for up to four more weeks.
  • Articles are delivered in electronic way. The download link will be available for one week.


  • For students and external users: 1,50 €
  • The university pays for orders from its employees.

This amount is due, even if you do not pick up the media you ordered.
