The Regensburg University Library procures literature not available in Regensburg libraries from libraries in Germany and abroad.
You can order books and copies from books and scientific journals.
Excluded from inter-library loan orders are the following:
An online inter-library loan in the Bavarian Library Union is also possible via Gateway Bayern .
Special case: No matching hit in the entire Regensburg catalogue plus, or the book cannot be found in Regensburg.
In this case, click on "Information" in the blue menu bar and select "Interlibrary Loan". After another click on "Interlibrary Loan Order" you have to choose between:
Now you have to enter all the necessary information on the desired title into the form.
If applicable: Please indicate that the Regensburg copy cannot be found or is missing or that the online edition is currently not accessible.
E-books and e-journals are in some cases available for inter-library loan (in accordance with the license agreements between the lending libraries and the publishers).
You can only use e-books via inter-library loan if your e-mail address is registered in your user account. If an e-book is made available to you via inter-library loan, you will receive an e-mail with a link to the e-book which is valid for two weeks.
If you order the printed edition of a book, it may happen that the order is redirected to the electronic edition of the book. In this case you will receive a link that leads you to the e-book. The reverse case is also possible: instead of an e-book you will receive a printed copy via inter-library loan.
If you order copies from e-books or an essay from an e-journal, you will receive a fee-based paper printout.
If an e-book or an e-journal is not available for inter-library loan, use the printed copy of the book or journal for inter-library loan.
Inter-library loan of books within the German lending system is usually free of charge.
There is also currently no nominal charge for copies.
Charges may apply for special collections and for copies of 100 pages or more.
International Loans (ILL) may be subject to high fees, depending on the supplying library and shipping costs. These fee-based orders will only be carried out after consultation with you.
At the Loans section in the Central Library (opening hours).
Each inter-library loan medium is accompanied by a yellow paper strip which shows the deadline. Please note: It is essential to keep this strip in the medium and return it together.
In any case, please provide us with your e-mail address (user details in your library account) before placing an inter-library loan order!
Please allow at least seven days for processing. As soon as we receive the ordered books or journal articles, you will be notified by e-mail if you have entered an e-mail address in your library account.
You will also receive an e-mail if there are still questions regarding your order or if the inter-library loan order is unsuccessful.
You can check the status of your orders at any time. Either in your user account of the Regensburger Katalog plus or from the signing team:
Usually for four weeks plus one renewal (loan periods are determined by the supplying library).
The loan period is noted on the enclosed (yellow) inter-library loan confirmation and in your library account.
Each renewal takes place under reserve which means that the lending library can reclaim the book earlier.
Essay copies may be kept.
Other usage restrictions (e.g. reading room use, reproduction ban) are also set by the supplying library.
