Return of borrowed media

You can return the media at the service desks of the library. It does not matter in which library you are.

Media ordered via the interlibrary loan, have always to be returned during the opening hours to the library from which you have loaned them:

Return media outside the opening hours

At the ICMC you also have the option to return media outside the service hours. You can use the Media-return-box in the entrance area.
Note that you will not get any return receipt and the media will be only recognized at the next opening day.

Media return by mail

Please send the media together with your user name and your user number always to the library where you borrowed them.
It is the day on which the media are received and booked back that counts. The postmark will not be considered.

Media return by third parties

A return by third parties is possible without a library card. Note that you will be hold responsible to return the borrower.
