Using and Borrowing Media

You can use our wide range of media directly in our reading rooms or order online via our Regensburg Catalogue plus and borrow it to take home. Literature that is not available on site can be obtained from other libraries via interlibrary loan. You are welcome to suggest media for procurement.

Use of media in the reading rooms

A large part of our media is available for you directly in the 13 reading rooms during our opening hours.
In addition, we offer you the possibility to borrow media for short-term lending, overnight lending and weekend lending. Literature in "Semesterapparaten" is set up in the reading room for one semester.


With your library card you can order media from the central holdings through the Regensburg catalogue and borrow them for use at home. The ordered media are available for you at the lending desk in the Central Library. Your user account gives you an overview of the media you have ordered and borrowed.

You can borrow the books of the textbook collection via the self checkout.

If you have provided us with your e-mail address, you will receive an early reminder before the loan period expires.

Document delivery

Literature that is not available on site can be obtained for you through our interlibrary loan service. In addition, we also offer the document delivery service subito, which is subject to a fee
