Through interlibrary loan you can obtain books and copies of articles from journals from other libraries in Germany and abroad. As a rule, the desired literature can be ordered online following a search in a database.

For this service, which is subject to a charge, you must first register and pay into a credit account.

For research and ordering you then use the following database:
