If a publication you need is not available in Braunschweig, you can order it via interlibrary loan. This requires you to be registered at the University Library and have a GBV online interlibrary account (which you can open at the Circulation Desk).

  • As a student of TU Braunschweig, you can order 3 interlibrary loans for free each semester. To do this you open an extra interlibrary loan account at the Circulation Desk.
  • Every loan you order will cost you 1.50 EUR (or 1 free interlibrary loan for students). The fee has to be paid in cash at the Circulation Desk before placing your order, even if the loan is not successful.
  • For institutes of TU Braunschweig: Formular zur Bestellung von Verrechnungseinheiten für die Online-Fernleihe u.ä.

Placing your order
  • Please take into account that every interlibrary loan takes at least one week.
  • When using our catalogue (right tab 'Other Libraries') you will often find the information "Check possibility for interlibrary loan" or "Bestellbarkeit über Fernleihe prüfen". Use this link or go directly to the catalogue of the GBV Common Network to place your order.
  • The publications you ordered will be delivered to the University Libray Braunschweig.
  • Small hint: If the library does not have a book you need, tell us via our acquisition proposal form and we will do our best to purchase it.

Notification and loan period
  • Once the publication you ordered is available at the Circulation Desk, you will be notified by email.
  • This information will also be displayed in your account (the loan number will be displayed as publication title).
  • The loan period (normally 4 weeks) is determined by the library the book comes from and can only be renewed at the Circulation Desk. Please renew the loan a few days before it expires or return the publication to the Circulation Desk.
  • Copies of articles do not have to be returned.

Fee-based document delivery service Subito
  • An interlibrary loan is not fast enough for you? You need the publication in 2 oder 3 days? If this is the case, you can use the delivery service Subito. This is a fast and uncomplicated service many German libraries offer where the books or copies will be send directly to you.
