Interlibrary Loan


Material not available in the TU or UdK library can be ordered via interlibrary loan by registered users.

Please check in advance if items are available in TU, UdK or other Berlin libraries:

Primo Knowledge Portal (TU Berlin)

Knowledge Portal of the Arts (UdK Berlin)

KOBV Portal (Kooperativer Bibliotheksverbund Berlin Brandenburg)

Obtaining items directly from a Berlin library will be quicker than ordering via interlibrary loan.
