Services for scientists of the University of Münster

You can order books and other media from the collections of the Central Library 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.) or the Social Sciences Branch Library (MonFri 8:45 a.m. – 5 p.m.) – you will be informed about the availability by email. This regulation also applies to interlibrary loan orders, both for book and essay orders.
Further information on borrowing conditions can be found in the FAQs.

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 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. Currently, no printed course reserves are set up in the reading room because we cannot guarantee accessibility to the reading room within a certain time frame.
