Reading-Room Loan Service

Almost all items from the collections of the Bayerische Staatsbibliothek can be ordered for consultation in the General Reading Room via the  OPACplus. Some works, e. g. large formats or books with a great number of illustrations, may be used exclusively in the reading rooms for reasons of conservation.
It takes 2 to 3 workings days for your orders to be made available in the corresponding provision shelves in the reading room. We kindly ask our users to collect the volumes there themselves and to have them booked on their user account at the lending desk of the reading room loan service. For subsequent use kindly return the volumes to the provision shelves. After the expiry of the lending term the items are automatically returned to the repository. Please note that the lending term can be extended upon request. If items are no longer needed, kindly take them to the return desk.
Volumes ordered for consultation in the reading room cannot be taken home.
For detailed information on the loan procedure please refer to  Order and Loan Procedure.
