The University Library can obtain media from other libraries in Berlin, Germany or abroad through external library loans (interlibrary loans). Media can only be requested if it is not already in the collection of the FU libraries.
The requirement for interlibrary loans is a valid user card, which is required to log-in (home library = FU Berlin). The interlibrary loan request can be canceled via the Cooperative Library Network Berlin-Brandenburg (KOBV) portal.
The links for interlibrary loans can be found in the Primo library portal under the results list.
A large portion of requested media will be delivered within one to two weeks. In individual cases the delivery time can be shorter or significantly longer.
The lending period is generally 4 weeks and can usually be extended by another 4 weeks, with reservations.
All interlibrary loans are handed out at the University Library and must be returned there as well.
