Campus delivery service

What is the campus delivery service?

Via the internal campus delivery service (CaLD) it is possible to order borrowable and available media from the branch libraries on the other campus which are not available on your campus.

Who can order?

All users of the Duisburg-Essen University Library with a valid library card.

What can I order?

All borrowable and available media from the branch libraries on the other campus.Books from the reference collections in the stockrooms with the location marks D04, D08, D16, D96, D98, E06 und E36 can also be ordered.

Please use our internal article delivery service to order journal articles only available on the other campus.

How can I order?

Please first log in to our Primo catalog and start your search.

Please click on the option "Hold" in the column "Request Options". Finally, click on the button "SEND REQUEST".

When and where can I pick up ordered media?

Usually, three working days after the order has been placed, you can pick up the ordered medium in the Humanities and Social Sciences Library, the LK Library or the Medical Library depending on the selected pick-up location. Orders from the Medical Library and from the foreign magazine Ruhrort will need more time.

Ordered copies from the reference collections are provided in the reading room of the selected pick-up location.

You will receive an e-mail notification as soon as the ordered media is ready. The media will be made available to you for one week.

Where can I return the media?

Regardless of whether they are ordered through the campus delivery service or borrowed personally, media can be returned to the Humanities and Social Sciences Library, the LK Library or the Medical Library.

It is not possible to return media that were borrowed via short-term borrowing on the other campus. These media must be returned to the same campus.

Please also note our instructions for re-lending after reaching the five-time renewal limit.

Why can't I place an order?

You would like to order media from the other campus but no link "Hold" (= "Vormerkung / Bestellung") appears?

Possible causes:

  • You haven't logged in yet.
    Go to our Primo catalog and select the option "Sign in" (= "Anmelden").
  • The media can not be borrowed and therefore can not be ordered via the campus delivery service.
  • Your user rights are not entered correctly for the campus delivery service. Please contact our staff the lending desks personally.
