Working in the library

Unfortunately, no workstations can be provided in the library at this time.

Borrowing items

How can I borrow items?

According to § 6 para. 4 of the current Corona regulation of the state, only ordered media can be borrowed. We ask the students to take this into account.

The media must be ordered in advance via FINDEX. You will then be notified by mail when and for how long the ordered media will be available for you.

The borrowing service for the Departmental Library FHZ can be reached via the terrace of the cafeteria "Denkpause". The door next to the return machine is open during the times mentioned above. All other Departmental Libraries can be reached via the normal entrance.

Borrowing is only possible via the Self-check-machine.
To be able to use the self-check-machine, you must know your FH-ID and your corresponding password! It is not possible to borrow from the library staff. The self-check-machine is operated via a touch screen and is cleaned regularly. If you still do not want to touch the touch screen, please bring disposable gloves yourself.

It is not possible to return books via the self-check-machine, and there are no workstations available in the library.

For current opening hours, please refer to the pages of the respective Department Library.

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

Yes, it's possible. However, borrowing is generally only possible for members of Münster University of Applied Sciences and Münster Academy of Art. 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. Afterwards the equipment will be returned. The devices can only be borrowed if the loan receipt can be shown as a printout or on the smartphone.
The end of the loan period is the date on the loan receipt.

For current opening hours, please refer to the pages of the respective Department Library.

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

- Hüfferstiftung Departmental Library behind the building (inner courtyard) at the rear entrance door (Johann-Krane-Weg 23, 48149 Münster).
- Steinfurt Departmental Library in front of building part A, (Stegerwaldstraße 39, 48565 Steinfurt).
When using the return boxes, the return posting will be made at a later date for organisational reasons. This does not result in any late fees.

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.
