Interlibrary Loan Service

When you need scientific or scholarly literature that is not available at Bonn University Library or any other Bonn library, you can order it from a library in another city through our interlibrary loan service (“Fernleihe”). The desired book will be ordered online. There is a charge for use of the interlibrary loan service.

Please sign in via the registration form on the right, entering

  • your user ID that you find on your library card,
  • your password that you use to access your account in bonnus - discovery service, and
  • specify whether you want to order a book or a periodical article.


Fees and delivery

Once you send off your order, you will be sent a confirmation that lists your order number. The interlibrary loan fee (1,50 €) will be automatically charged to your user account. This is a processing fee that applies to every order regardless of whether the item you order can be delivered.

You will be sent a Notification as soon as the library has received the item you have ordered. You can call up the current status of your interlibrary loan request on your DigiBib interlibrary loan account (in German).


You can find more information on further document delivery services on our german web pages.
