An overview of the department

The fundamental task of the User Services Department is to make the printed literature, digital media and microforms held by the library available to our customers in a suitable manner. The responsibility for the most important research instrument – BSB DISCOVER! – and contributing to its constant improvement form part of the core tasks of the department. Interlibrary loan and direct delivery services are central services that are in great demand in Bavaria, Germany and internationally. The department is furthermore in charge of presenting the library in the World Wide Web, and of informing users at the information desks, on the telephone and via an online inquiry service. The comprehensive information offer is rounded off by courses, guided tours of the premises and tutorials. Further, the department is responsible for coordinating the reading-room services of the library.
