Interlibrary Loans

Electronic delivery of copies via interlibrary loan
Since February 1, 2024, you will receive copies ordered via interlibrary loan directly by email. You will receive a download link including the specific access data. With that you will have access to the PDF file for 30 days. Nothing changes for you in the ordering process. This way of delivery is possible due to a new contract between the Conference of Ministers of Education and Cultural Affairs and the VG-Wort.

Attention: Has your email address changed? Please inform the information (, in addition to the change in your library account. This is the only way the new address can be adjusted in your interlibrary loan account.

Books which are not available in Frankfurt's libraries can be ordered from other libraries.


This service is not free of charge. Please set up an interlibrary loans credit account at one of the following libraries in person. All other steps you can do online at home!

As your interlibrary loan account will be debited with at least € 2,00 for each interlibrary loan order please make sure that there is enough money deposited to cover these charges. Any monies left over will be reimbursed when you dissolve your account. For international loans orders at least € 8,00 for each volume (or 20 pages) plus additional charges (e.g. postage) will be deducted.
