How do I request a book through Interlibrary Loan

Ordering process

Log into your DigiBib-account. Choose the tab "Inter-Library Loan", then "Books and Book Chapters" from the menu on the left. Enter a word or words from the book title into the search field, in this example "smartphone video storytelling" and click the "Continue" button.

The search results from the various databases are sorted according to ISBN / ISSN and then arranged alphabetically by title. Select the item of interest, then choose "Complete Book" by "Order by ILL" and click "Select".

Please include the following information when submitting your request:

  • Are other editions of the title or foreign language editions acceptable, should the requested item not be available?
  • Is there a limit on additional fees you are willing to pay, should further costs be required? (especially important by international library loan requests)
  • Are there any further remarks you would like to add to your request? (i.e.: only this edition)
  • Note: In general the e-mail address provided on your library user registration form will be automatically entered into your request form. It is therefore very important that you report any changes to your personal data to the library immediately. (E-mail the library at zbausleihe(at) or stop by the library personally.)


To complete your request enter your TAN and click "Order".

"Die Bestellung wurde erfolgreich abgesetzt" indicates that your request has been received and is being processed. You may use your TAN to check on the status of individual orders at any time by logging into your ILL account.
