It is not possible to return books via the self-check-machine or at the counter during circulation hours.

Is it possible to borrow electrical devices (VR equipment)?

The equipment must be ordered in advance using the order form on one of the websites listed below and will be loaned to your library account after the order has been processed. You will receive a loan receipt by e-mail and then have the possibility to pick up the equipment during Lending hours in the Departmental Library of your choice up to 4 days after the loan date.

Returning items

The loan period for my books expires. What should I do?

A: You have the following options:

1. you return the book via the return machine in the bistro courtyard of the FHZ (Corrensstr. 25, 48149 Münster) or via the return boxes at the other locations
- Library for Architecture, Design and Art outside at the door to the library foyer (Leonardo-Campus 10, 48149 Münster).

2. Use the online extension. In principle, all borrowed media can be extended several times. The renewal is valid from the day it was carried out.
Therefore: Please renew only once at first! There is no point in immediately renewing a second time, you are "giving away" another loan period.

A: You can deposit these items on a marked book trolley during the loan periods in the Departmental Library from which they were borrowed.
For organisational reasons, a return posting will be made at a later date. This will not result in any late fees.
