Interlibrary loan costs

On the basis of the Regulations on Interlibrary Loan in the Federal Republic of Germany (Leihverkehrsordnung - LVO) (circular of the Ministry of Urban Development and Housing, Culture and Sport of March 8th, 2004), an interlibrary loan in the national interlibrary loan system is subject to a charge.

In accordance with the decree of the MIWFT of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia of June 8th, 2005, an order fee of 1,50 Euros is charged for each order, which is automatically entered into the library account after the order has been successfully placed. For employees of the university who wish to be billed within the university, billing via transaction numbers (TANs) is possible as an alternative. The TANs are sent by e-mail upon submission of a form or issued at the circulation desk (with a minimum purchase of 10).

The order fee applies to every order, even if delivery takes a very long time or if no external library can fulfil the order.

In cases of particularly high expenditure (e.g. copies of very long essays, colour copies) additional costs may be charged. In these cases, the interlibrary loan request will only be forwarded once you have given your consent for the costs to be covered. If items are returned late, overdue fines will be charged in accordance with the Paderborn University Library's fee regulations.

If your order cannot be processed through national interlibrary loan because the desired title is not available in any German library, you have the option of using international interlibrary loan. Costs and delivery times in international interlibrary loan vary greatly. They depend on the respective delivery library. The minimum charge for a delivery is 8 Euros. For more information, please contact the Interlibrary Loan and Digitization Department.
