Choose your Check-out Library
If you order books from other branch libraries or our closed-access collections, you can pick them up at the branch library of your choice. You select the check-out library before the search by
- clicking on the preferred branch library when starting the Online Catalogue OPAC
- or by choosing the preferred branch library on the search interface in the pulldown box "Pick up book at".
We will then make the requested items ready for collection at the circulation desk of the branch library you have chosen. At the Branch Library Main Campus you can collect your ordered items from the self-service shelf where they are arranged in alphabetical order under your family name. Please have the items checked-out at the circulation desk before leaving the library.
Changing check-out library
A subsequent change of the check-out library is not possible. As soon as you have ordered an item, our electronic lending system triggers the delivery process.
If the item was accidentally ordered to the wrong branch library, we can cancel the order for you. Please inform us personally, by phone, e-mail or chat about your library number and the title for which we should stop the order process. After this you have to order the item again. It can take up to one week until the item is available for you again
Delivery Time & Express Check-out
The delivery time takes in general between 1 and 3 days. Items will be held 10 days for checking-out. Due to the longer distances involved, orders from and to the Branch Library Renewable Resources in Straubing will take up to 5 days for delivery.
In the Branch Library Main Campus an express check-out is available for library items from closed-access collections on the main campus. Items will be ready for collection 2 hours after ordering. Orders after 3.00 p.m. will be available the next working day at 10.00 a.m.
Postponing the Pick-up Deadline
The period of 10 days for picking-up items can not be extended. If you do not pick up a hold within the pick-up period, your book order will be cancelled and the item returned to the library collection. Subsequently you can order the items again via OPAC. Please keep in mind: If the item has been reserved by a third person, it will first be available for this library user.
