By interlibrary loan you can order books and articles that the Potsdam University Library does not have - from other libraries in Germany and abroad.
Before you start an interlibrary loan, we recommend to check the KOBV-Portal (catalogue of libraries in the Berlin-Brandenburg area) first. It is very likely that the book you are looking for is available at a library around the corner.
As of now, copies and books can be ordered again via interlibrary loan.
You may place your orders as usual via the GBV Union Catalogue (GVK). If you do not have an interlibrary loan account yet, please contact the interlibrary loan department by e-mail. We will set up an account for you or place the order in your name.
As delays in delivery still may occur, interlibrary loan services are provided free of charge until 31 May 2020.
Due to a temporary arrangement with VG Wort, articles may continue to be delivered electronically to end users until 31 May 2020.
For more details, see the information page by the Common Library Network (GBV).
You have to be a registered user of the University Library and there must be sufficient credit on your interlibrary loan account. If you are not sure whether you have an account or not, please ask our colleagues at the information desks of the departmental library of your choice or get in touch with us directly.
Fees per order:
Units can be purchased at the information desks in the departmental libraries.

Successfully handled orders will arrive at your departmental library approximately within 8 to 10 days. After your order has arrived you will receive an email notification.
If the requested title could not be supplied, you will receive a negative response from the Interlibrary Loan Department. You can decide if your order should be followed up or not. This will entail no additional costs.
The loan period is defined by the lending library. Please make sure you return your book on time. Otherwise, additional charges will apply.
If a renewal of the loan is possible, this will have to be requested 3 days before the current loan period expires.
Please use our online form to extend the loan period.
