If you need a book that is not available at one of the libraries in Regensburg, we will order it from another German Library or even from abroad (special conditions apply).
Inter-library loans are based on the rules for inter-library loans, whereas some of the paragraphs regarding costs have not yet been applied in Bavarian Libraries.
Loan periods and conditions of use (e.g. For use only in a reading-room) are determined by the lending library and therefore cannot be altered by us.
Book orders within Germany are usually free.
If the original document is not for loan, a copy of it may be delivered. If charges (for copying) don't exceed 10 Euro, we deliver without any further enquiry.
For photocopies the following costs apply:
If we have to order a book from abroad, special conditions apply. There can be high costs regarding insurance and postal delivery fees (depending on the delivering library).
E-books and e-journals can be used in part for inter-library loans (subject to the licensing agreements between the provider libraries and publishers).
You can only use e-books via inter-library loans if you have notified us of your e-mail address. If an e-book is made available for you via inter-library loans, you will receive an e-mail with a link which will direct you to the e-book and which is valid for two weeks.
For using e-books via inter-library loan you must supply your e-mail address.
If you order the printed edition of a book, it can occasionally occur that your order will be redirected to the electronic edition of the book. In that case you will also receive an email with a link which will direct you to the e-book.
