The library of the Environmental Campus offers a stock of approximately 55,000 printed and audiovisual media units (books, magazines, DVDs, etc.) and about 40,000 e-books. Much of it can be borrowed or downloaded free of charge.
In addition, you can borrow USB sticks at the information desk.
In the following overview you will find the most important information about lending.
As a registered user of the library, you can borrow books, AV media (e.g. DVDs) and journals from the library free of charge. The only exceptions are media that belong to the library's reference or special collection.
The printed and audiovisual media can be researched via the online catalogue. If there is a hit, you will find a call number in the display (e.g. "phil Ac 014"). It tells you where to find the medium in the bookshelves. The self-check terminals serve for lending.
To return borrowed media (books, DVDs, etc.) please use the return terminal in the 24/7 room in front of the library ("Bib 24/7"). Simply let the media slide through the return slot; it will be automatically returned.
Press the button on the right to get a return receipt.
