What is the procedure for requestin an item?

Orders are placed using an electronic form. A 1,50 Euro handling fee is payable per order. This amount will be charged to your user account when the item is sent.

Before using the electronic form to order a Interlibrary Loan please check the book title:

If the book title/journal title is listed in the library system, the Library Esslingen and Göppingen cannot request the book or journal from other libraries.

How long will it take for my order to arrive?

An Interlibrary Loan Request takes 1-4 weeks to arrive. If you require the text within a few days, a normal order is pointless. In this case, please use the Express Service for which a charge will be levied.

Collection and Loan

You will receive an e-mail from us when your order has arrived.
If you have ordered an essay from a journal you will receive a photocopy which you may keep. Up to 20 copies can be ordered free of charge. The cost of further copies is determined by the individual libraries.
Charges and administration, including ensuring that loans are returned punctually, are carried out through our loans system.

Loan period / Renewal

Please respect the loan period, which is usually four weeks for books and two weeks for newspapers. Make a note of the return date on the receipt which you receive when you take out a book.
Loans can be renewed in the week prior to the return date. Requests should be made to the library which ordinarily holds the item. If you want to do this, please contact either Frau Strtak at the Esslingen UL or Frau Kleofass at the Göppingen UL.
If your library books are overdue, our loans system will automatically send you a warning, for which a cost is incurred.

Returns

Interlibrary Loans can be returned at the Esslingen or Göppingen library.

Express Service

For urgent Interlibrary Loan Orders, the document delivery service "subito" can help. Using this service incurs a charge. Your order is guaranteed to arrive within 3 working days using the normal service, and within 1 day (by post) for very urgent orders. Books as well as essays from journals can be ordered. Use this subito-link to find out which library holds the publication you require and to have it delivered to your home.
Furthermore, you will find the exact costs on the website of subito.
