Campus delivery service
The internal campus delivery service (CaLD) can be used to order borrowable and available media,
which are not available at the desired pick-up location.
Who can order?
All library users with a valid library card can order media via the campus delivery service.
What can I order?
All borrowable and available media that are not available at the desired pick-up location can be ordered.
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.
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
Usually, three working days after the order has been placed, you can pick up the ordered media 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 email notification as soon as the ordered media is ready. Media are available for pickup for seven days.
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.
Why can't I place an order?
You would like to order media from the other campus but no link "Hold" (= "Vormerkung / Bestellung") appears?
- 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.
- The book is available at your desired pick-up location.
