Request items from the University Library collection to the Reading Room without a library card

On principle a library card is obligatory to request and borrow items form the library collections.

>How do I get a library card?

Without a library card you can order items into our Reading Room for consultation only. This service is addressed to one-time users of University Library who live far away or who want to visit our library for a short time within the scope of research. This form is not suitable for loan requests.

First, please retrieve the item by searching our online catalog HEIDI. A number of titles published prior to 1962 remain to be cataloged in HEIDI; at present searches for these items may continue to require use of the digitized card catalog DigiKat.
