Interlibrary Loan & Document Delivery

Interlibrary loan & copy orders for library users
The University Library is happy to order media and journal articles, which are available neither via our Primo Metasearch nor in the holdings of the Liechtenstein libraries. We search for the documents and order them in libraries in Switzerland or other foreign countries.

Delivery times are depending on the supplying library.
• Switzerland: 2-5 working days
• Germany, Austria: 2-4 weeks / rest of Europe: min. 4 weeks
Pick-up and return media
• Media from abroad at the information desk, where you also pay the interlibrary loan fees.

Fees
Interlibrary loan and copy orders are subject to fees. For some orders from abroad, actual costs incurred may be charged. Special rates apply to members of the University of Liechtenstein.

How to proceed
If the desired book or article is not available in any Liechtenstein library, the document can be searched e.g. in Swisscovery metacatalogue.

Temporary Course Reserve Collection (Semesterapparat)

What is a temporary reserve collection?
Reserve collections contain literature on individual lectures throughout a semester. Lecturers can ensure that all students have equal access to these books and other media by placing them on the reference shelf. 
Reserve collection items are excluded from circulation. They remain on reserve for the entire semester and can only be used within the library. For individual documents, however, a short term loan overnight or over the weekend is possible. Please contact the information desk.
    
Setting up a temporary reserve collection
Lecturers can set up a reserve collection (Semesterapparat) by filling in this form. Please make sure to forward it to our team at least 4 weeks before the semester starts.
Contact for reserve collections: Jacqueline Stocker bibliothek@uni.li

Current reserve collections (SemApp)
The following links lead you directly to our Library catalogue. You can use them to view the literature list of the desired reserve collection. Documents from other library holdings can be in the reserve collections, but are not displayed in the result lists.

Note
The reference books for courses in architecture are located at the studios (west staircase).
