Loan periods

Loan periods vary, depending on the type of loan and which user group you belong to.

Members of all user groups may borrow any books from the stacks that are indicated as being “available for reservation” for a period of four weeks.

Other literature in the Reading Room is generally available for loan for two weeks for students and for one week for external readers. Each loan may be renewed up to four times.

The loan period for weekend loans (books with a yellow dot and books from semester reserves) begins between 6.00 p.m. on Friday and 12.45 p.m. on Saturday and ends at 10.00 a.m. on the following Monday.
Media with a red dot cannot be borrowed.
