Items on loan may be reserved on the  online-catalogue. To place a reservation you need your user number and password. It is possible to cancel a reservation via the borrower's account. As soon as the reserved item is ready for collection, it will appear in your account under "loans".
Students and staff of Erfurt University are notified by e-mail. External users leaving an e-mail address with the library are also notified free of charge. In all other cases reservation fees are charged (postage).
