The library’s collection is again freely accessible. Please feel free to collect your books directly from the shelves during our opening hours and then check them out using the self-service stations. Interlibrary loan items that can be picked up are available on the pick-up shelf. They also need to be checked out via the self-service stations. Returns using the stations are only possible where a yellow slip is attached to the item. A non-validated OHMcard will also work to borrow materials. Effective immediately, returns of media (excepting OHMbooks, locker keys, etc.) are exclusively possible using the automatic return stations in the foyer of the building. For this service, please note the hours the KL Building is open.

Laptop loans

Laptops (OHMbooks) can be borrowed and returned during our opening hours at the Service Counter. Please reserve laptops in OPAC.

Reserve collections/labs

Reserve book collections on order and media for laboratories will also continue to be sent by internal mail.

As is usual, it is possible to renew a loan five times in your OPAC user account (exceptions apply to special media like laptops and locker keys, interlibrary loans, media that have one-week loan periods, etc.), if the item in question has not been requested by another user. Renewals are possible five days before the due date.
New in the system: the first renewal is automatic, but you have to carry out subsequent renewals yourself. As mentioned above, this automatic renewal can only occur, if the item has not been requested by another user. 

Information about recalled items subject to fines

Since the library has reopened, and media can be returned during the times the KL Building is open using the automatic return stations in the foyer, we will need to recall overdue media, subject to a charge.

Where charges have been incurred on your library account, these can be deducted from the student ID card/library card at one of the OHM service terminals. The receipt generated by the terminal must be presented as proof of payment in the library. Please note the availability of the terminals (this can be found in the last column under "current availability"; Intranet page of Central IT, VPN access required from home) at the university.

The Ohm Service Terminal, that used to be in the Library, is now located in the foyer of the KI-KL building complex (on the left, next to the Library entrance).


SUBITO. Please note, though, that subito orders are usually more expensive than interlibrary loans.

With over 410,000 eBooks, 133,000 eJournals and numerous databases, the library now has a larger collection of electronic media than printed media. This means that we are able to provide you with literature even in these times.

All electronic items can be found in OPAC or on our website .

Among other things, the "Literature search by Faculty" pages provide a Faculty-specific compilation of the relevant electronic resources that we offer to make your search easier.

Please also refer to the instructions on the VPN for use from home.
The collection of electronic media can only be used by university members.
