  • Media you have ordered from our stacks can be picked up after about half a day in the lending area.
  • Media you have ordered from the library of the Hochschule or the Staatliche Bibliothek can be collected after approximately two days in the lending area.
  • Media you have ordered via inter-library loans can be picked up after 7 to 10 days in the lending area.

You will be notified by e-mail, when you can pick up a book from the library of the Hochschule, the Staatliche Bibliothek or inter-library loans, as long as we have your e-mail address.

Media from our stacks, from the library of the Hochschule or the Staatliche Bibliothek must be picked up within five working days.

Media ordered via inter-library loans must be collected within ten working days.
In case you cannot collect the media within that period, please contact the information desk  to extend the collection period.


Where can I collect the media I ordered?

Ordered media can be collected at the lending desk in the lending area (Ausleihe) of the central library during the opening hours.


Where can I return the media?

  • Please return media from the stacks and inter-library loans at the lending desk in the lending area (Ausleihe) of the central library. You can also return media from the library of the Hochschule and the Staatliche Bibliothek there.
  • Please return media from the textbook collection in the textbook collection.
  • Please return media you took out from the reading rooms via short-term or weekend loan where you collected them.


How can I extend the loan period of media?

The loan period of media from the stacks and the textbook collection is automatically extended after four weeks, if nobody else has reserved them.

If you need a second extension (another four weeks) you have to do it yourself:

Please access your account in the Regensburg Catalogue plus. After you log in all the loaned media will be listed including their loan periods. Extensions of the loan periods can be entered directly with each title.

Please note: All extensions are made under reserve, i.e. in case someone reserves the title during your first or second extension you will be notified by e-mail that the title has to be returned within one week. Please check your account regularly for this reason.
