Are you looking for a book or journal article that is not available in Mainz libraries? No problem. Simply request an interlibrary loan from another library.
Your First Time
To request an interlibrary loan you need a library card and an interlibrary loan account with sufficient credit. You’ll be charged a fee of €2 for each request.
You can have your interlibrary loan account set up at one of the following circulation desks:
- Mainz: Central Library, Mathematics, Computer Science, and Natural Sciences Library, or the University Medical Library
- Germersheim: Translation Studies, Linguistics, and Cultural Studies Library
To facilitate a largely contactless process, please fill out the registration form (PDF) in advance and bring the signed form with you. You can also send a scan of the signed form by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Payment of the interlibrary loan fee can be made on site in cash or by bank transfer to the following account:
IBAN DE41 5505 0120 0200 1322 98
Please be sure to enter “Interlibrary loan fees” and your library card number as Reason for Payment.
