Returning Items

Central Library

To return items to the Central Library, library patrons are asked to use the self-service book return machine located to the right of the Central Library entrance. This machine can be used whenever the building is open, independent of library opening hours.

Library for Social Sciences

Materials borrowed from the Library for Social Sciences can be returned to the library desk during the library’s opening hours. PLEASE NOTE: Only materials borrowed from the Library for Social Sciences can be returned here.

Reserving/Ordering books

For further information, see the restricted lending service COVID-19.

Payment of Fees and Fines

All fees and fines are paid by cashless payment at one of the two payment machines in the LC building (located close to the Central Library entrance). These machines can be used whenever the building is open, independent of library opening hours.
