In order to be able to borrow items from the RheinMain University and State Library, you need a library card.
Media with an "bestellen" button (=closed stacks) must be ordered via Katalog Plus. When ordering, you can choose between the pick-up locations Rheinstraße, Unter den Eichen and Rüsselsheim. Deployment time varies based on location selected. The media you have ordered will then be available for you at the pick-up location for seven working days.
Media that cannot be ordered are freely accessible and you can take them off the shelf yourself.
A medium can be renewed up to five times (online via your borrowing account ("Ihr Ausleihkonto") up to the last day of the lending period or by telephone) by a period of four or two weeks, unless it has been reserved by another user. A sixth renewal or a renewal after the end of the lending period is only possible by telephone or at the lending desk.
If a medium is borrowed, a reservation can be made. To do this:
- search for the title in Katalog Plus,
- click on "vormerken" and
- enter your user number and password.
If there are several copies, please note the date of return and the number of reservations.
Once the medium has been returned, you will receive an e-mail. You have seven working days to pick it up.
