Borrow & order

The items in the NTNM library are available to borrow. The borrowing conditions of the Saarland University library apply. If you would like to take items out of the NTNM library, please complete the one-off user registration process in our information area. Once you have registered, you will receive access details for your personal user account. Saarland University and INM members can simply use their Saarland University card as a user card. Visitors will receive a guest card. Literature that is not available on site can be made available to you for a fee via our document delivery service.

    Registration & User Account

    If you would like to borrow items from the NTNM library or use the library’s services, please complete the one-off user registration process in our information area, providing your contact details. To register, you will need to provide official photo identification and, if you are studying at Saarland University, your student identification.

    Once you have registered, you will receive access details for your personal user account. Here you can see your personal user details, renew your loans and reserve items that are currently out on loan.

    Loan periods

    The standard loan period is 28 days. You can renew your loans online for up to 10 x 4 weeks. This does not apply if a book has been reserved, in which case you must return the book at the end of the loan period.

    Document delivery service

    Our document delivery service provides access to any material that you need to use, for a fee. Whether it’s a book, a journal article, a patent or a standard, just ask: send us an email, call us or speak to us on site.
