Literature orders from material resources

You can also benefit from the UL's supplier contacts and special conditions when ordering from regular material funds as well as budget resources, third-party or project funds.

We take care of procuring and providing the requested literature and guarantee the proper proof (inventory) of the acquired media towards the university.

You are welcome to use our order form. Please sign it and send it to the library or scan it and send it to along with the details of the desired literature and the data of the budget to be charged (fund, cost center or PSP element and general ledger account).

After receipt and invoice processing, you will receive the ordered media together with a copy of the completed invoice by internal mail.

Please note:

Due to the special nature and quantity of the current daily papers and weekly magazines (for example, WAZ, FAZ, Handelsblatt, Die Zeit), their processing continues to be decentralized. The invoices will be forwarded to the administration for processing as usual.

When ordering electronic media, special conditions often apply; in this case, the best purchase methods should be clarified with the library in advance.

As the holder of the funds, you will still be responsible for monitoring the funds yourself.
