Borrowing

Most items held by the library are available for loan.
The following materials may only be used in the library:

Staff and students of all Austrian universities, as well as citizens of the European Union resident in Austria, are entitled to borrow materials from the library. Others have to deposit 250.- Euro. Minors (minimum age: 14) also need a declaration of liability from their parent or legal guardian.

A borrower card is issued to students on presentation of a valid students ID card and certificate of registration, and to others on presentation of a valid ID card and certificate of registration (main residence in Austria). For staff and students borrowing is free of charge, others have to pay either a monthly fee of 5.- Euro or an annual fee of 15.- Euro. Borrower cards are issued in the main reading room (Monday-Thursday 9:30-18:30, Friday 9:30-16:00).

The standard loan period is 28 days. Items on loan may be reserved by another reader. If no such reservation has been made the loan period can be extended on request (via telephone, ++431/71133/2268). Hold requests and renewals can also be placed via OPAC.
