Borrowable collections and reading room collections
All media items of the University Library are registered in the library catalogue.
Here you'll find the location and availability of our media as well as the borrowing information.
Most of our holdings are available on the shelves for self-service.
Literature can not only be searched through the catalog, but also directly on the shelf.
Borrowable and reading room media can be found in a common shelving:
|Borrowable collection||Without label at the book spine;|
Borrowable for everyone

At the Central Campus these books have a green label.
In the other libraries Senftenberg & Sachsendorf the books have a yellow label.
|Mediathek||Videos, CD-Roms und DVDs can be borrowed by everyone.|
There is a special shelf on the 6th floor in the ICMC and the Media is marked by a yellow label above the Signature.

The textbook collection (Lehrbuchsammlung - LBS) is freely accessible and can be found in separate shelves on each floor of the ICMC.
Books from the textbook collection are marked with an orange label above the signature on the spine.
The borrowing of books from the textbook collection is only allowed for students and employees of the BTU Cottbus Senftenberg.
To borrow media from the closed stacks, you need to order them in the library catalog using the "order" function. You need a User ID and your password.
The respective provisioning time of the ordered medium will be provided in the display after completion of the order. In general it takes 1 - 3 working days after ordering.
The ordered media will be reserved for you for 5 opening days. If they are not picked up during this period, we put them back into the magazine.
