Interlibrary Loan


Order books and articles from other libraries

If we don’t have the literature you are looking for, you can order it from another library for a fee (€ 1.50 per order) via our interlibrary loan service.
You are welcome to suggest missing books for acquisition.
Our catalogue tub.find also offers the search of literature from other libraries. Alternatively, the databases of the GBV (Gemeinsamer Bibliotheksverbund) can be used for interlibrary loan orders.
