Expense flate rate (fees)
As a cost for an interlibrary loan, you have to pay a flat rate fee per ordered medium (book, article copy, etc.). The amount is also due if the order cannot be fulfilled positively (i.e. if, for example, no library can deliver the document within the desired period).
The lump sum is settled via the acquisition of transaction numbers (TAN).
The amount of the expense flate rate is determined by the maintenance providers of the lending libraries (see Annex 5 of the Leihverkehrsordnung Rheinland-Pfalz, p. 333).
