Circulation (Loan, ILL and Purchase Suggestion)
A valid library card is necessary for the library login (library computer, library portal). User cards are issued free of charge at the circulation desks.
If a publication is not held at any of the FU libraries you can request it as an interlibrary loan. A valid FU-Campuscard for students or library card is required. Interlibrary loans are processed through the Berlin-Brandenburg library network KOBV (Fernleihindex). See information concerning interlibrary loan on the University Library (UB) website.
Fees may apply. Items delivered can be picked up at the UB circulation desk – or at the UB reading room, if they may not be taken out.
Purchase suggestions can be submitted through the online form at the UB homepage if the item in question is a recent publication. Suggestions can be made for the University Library or for a department library. A reply will will be given by e-mail. If the publication suggested is purchased, it can be delivered directly to the circulation desk or to the reading room according to users' requests.
