Services for scientists of the University of Münster
Freely accessible and directly borrowable books and other media (e.g. in the textbook collection) you can take from the shelf yourself and check them out or order them via the courier service (see below).
Other books and media (e.g. from the closed stacks) must be ordered via the ULB catalogue [de].
If the user number on your library card starts with a "K", please pick up your orders at the library – you will be informed about the availability by email. This regulation also applies to interlibrary loan book and article 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 interlibrary loan book and article orders.
If you want to order a book from the open stacks, 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 or at the registration desk (Mon – Fri 11 a.m. – 12 noon and 3 p.m. – 4 p.m. and by arrangement).
If you need journal articles or book chapters from the collections of the ULB for your personal research, we can deliver them – if the copyright law allows us to do so – via our new Campus Delivery Service.
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. We can also set up printed course reserves in the reading room.
