Self-lending terminals

Essen campus

In the Humanities and Social Sciences Library and the MNT Library (Essen) and LK Library (Duisburg), you borrow your media by using our self-lending terminals.

To do so, you will need your user number/university ID and your PIN.

The operation is by menu and diagrams. First, the validity of the library card is established, then you can read in the books individually. They are automatically added to your account. Via a built-in thermoprinter, you can receive a receipt for your borrowed books giving the due date.

In the LK, BA and MC Libraries (Duisburg campus) as well an in the Humanities and Social Sciences Library and MNT Library (Essen campus) you will find your reserved media (except journals and interlibrary loan orders) in a publicly accessible area. You can collect reserved media and books yourself and check out at the lending desks or - if available - at one of our self-service devices to avoid queue time.

In the Medical Library (Essen) you can collect reserved media at the lending desk.
