Services for scientists of the University of Münster

You can order books and other media from the collections of the Central Library (except books from the textbook collection, see below) via the ULB catalogue [de]. This also applies to the collections of

  • the Social Sciences Branch Library,
  • the library of the Institute of Educational Science and
  • the Centre for Dutch Studies.

If the user number on your library card starts with a "K", please pick up your orders at the Central Library (MonFri 9 a.m. – 5 p.m.), the Social Sciences Branch Library (MonFri 8:45 a.m. – 5 p.m.) or the library of the Institute of Educational Science (MonFri 12 noon – 2 p.m.) respectively – you will be informed about the availability by email. This regulation also applies to interlibrary loan orders, both for book and essay orders.
You can access the textbook collection again from Monday, 3 August, and you can borrow books from this collection from Monday to Friday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Further information on borrowing conditions can be found in the FAQs in the section "Borrowing – returns – renewals".

If you use the courier service (user number starts with "X"), your orders will be sent to you via internal post; this also applies to all interlibrary loan orders.
If you want to order a book from the textbook collection ("Zentralbibliothek / Lehrbuch-Magazin (EG)"), go to the detailed view of the hit in the ULB catalogue [de], look for the right-hand box titled "weitere Optionen" and click on "Treffer ausgeben". A form will open in which you should leave the option "Ausgabe im Vollformat" marked and enter the following information:
Betreff: Your user number ; Your email address ; Your last name
Then click on "Versenden".
(Please do not send lists, but send each title separately.)

If you do not yet have a library card for the ULB, you can apply for one using the online form.

If you need journal articles or book chapters for your personal research, we can deliver them – if the copyright law allows us to do so – via our new Campus Delivery Service [de].

For literature for your classes we recommend our Electronic Course Reserves [de] (Elektronischer Semesterapparat, ESA): Journal articles and book chapters will be made available to your students in your Learnweb classroom.
