Delivery services

What do document delivery services offer me?

In addition to the national and international interlibrary loan system of the libraries, you have the possibility to use commercial document delivery services to order scientific literature such as books or articles.

Their use usually involves higher costs, but offers faster delivery times and in some cases allows you to obtain hard-to-reach documents (e.g. US dissertations not published by publishers).

In the following overview you will find a selection of national and international delivery services.
