Borrowing and requests

The University Library is an open-stack library. The majority of the approximately 1.4 million books in its reading rooms are available for browsing and borrowing.

If a resource is unavailable in one of the Oldenburg libraries you can request it from another library through the interlibrary loan or subito document delivery services.

Book Orders and Scan Requests via Online Form

Since the beginning of the emergency services, the university library has consistently continued to offer a scan service and the lending of books to students, faculty and teaching staff.

On Monday 25, 2020, the university library will enter into special operations mode, and all library users holding a valid library card can place loan orders and pick up their requested titles in the library between 4 p.m. and 6 p.m.
Members of the university (students, faculty and teaching staff) may also pick up and check out books between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m.

Scan requests and loan orders must be placed using the online-form.

This simplifies the transfer of orders for the users, speeds processes for the library staff and allows for clearer communication about the requested literature. To place an order, log into your library account. Four book orders and scan requests are possible per person per day.

News on CampusCard and Library Card

In time, the CampusCard will replace your library card and its functions. When the university hands out the new CampusCard, not all functions that your library card currently offers will be integrated into the CampusCard, yet. What does that mean for you?

Students already holding a library card

If you already have a library card, simply continue using it.

Presumably, from the winter semester 20/21 on, you will be able to use the CampusCard for book loans, payments of charges and/or fees and for the copiers/printers in the library. Up to that time, continue to use your library card for these purposes.

For the lockers you can use either your library card or the CampusCard.

Students without a library card

If you do not hold a library card, you may use the CampusCard for book loans. This CampusCard function must be activated at the Registration/User-Services counter in the library.

Presumably, from the winter semester 20/21 on, you will be able to use the CampusCard also for payments of charges and/or fees and for the copiers/printers in the library. Until that time, you must use one of the payment cards that are available for (refundable) 5 Euros from the vending machine on level 1 in the central library (near the Registration/User-Services counter).
