Select "Library Use and Borrowing" on our homepage and under the item "Ordering from other libraries" the item "Interlibrary loan". There you will find a link to the interlibrary loan portal of the Digital Library (DigiBib hbz) under the heading "Interlibrary loan of books and sections from books". By entering your library card number as well as your password (identical to your registration in the university library catalogue) you will then personally log in to the interlibrary loan portal of the Digital Library via "Interlibrary loan of books and sections from books".
Use the search mask to search for the title of the book. Select the title you want from the subsequent hit list. For each book title, you will see how many libraries hold the book and whether it is also available in our interlibrary loan region. If you are offered several hits for the desired title, you should select the hit that also lists stock for our interlibrary loan region. These holdings usually have the shortest delivery time.
Choose whether you want the complete book for loan or a section as a copy. It is possible to order up to 10% of a work as a copy. Clicking on the button "Auswählen" (Select) will take you to the order form. Further details are required here, e.g. whether you also agree to other editions. Additional costs may apply to the order, e.g. if more than 20 pages are copied. In this case, please enter the amount up to which you would like to pay the costs.
You can also specify whether the supplying library should make a reservation for you if the item you have ordered is currently on loan. Please note that reservations may delay delivery.
Finally, select the payment method - billing via your library account or entering a TAN.
After pressing the "Bestellen" (Order) button, you will receive confirmation from the system that your order has been successfully placed.
If a title consists of several volumes, a separate order is required for each volume.
If you are ordering a newly published title, you may be asked for a "Fachzuordnung" (Subject assignment). In this case, a drop-down list with a subject selection will appear in the order process. Please assign your order request to the appropriate subject. Paderborn University Library then checks whether the desired item is also of interest to other users and should therefore be acquired for its own collection. If the decision is positive, the desired item will be purchased and made available to you.
