 Using the Library


Registration and use of the library

Using the LIN-library/Combined library of the theoretical institutes is free of charge.

To register you have to fill in the form below and to present an official identity document which includes a photograph and your address.
If you are already a member of the Medical Central Library no additional registration is required .

You immediately get a library card which is also recognized in the Medical Central Library (MZB). Cards from the MZB will be recognized at the LIN library.  For students of the Otto-von-Guericke-University the student identification card serves as the library card too.

You need the library card for borrowing library items, maintaining your user account (changing of password, renewing of items, placing a hold) as well as for using the PC's in the Medical Central Library.

On your library card you'll find your user number (11 characters). Your date of birth (in the form ddmmyy) is preseeded as your password. Notify us immediately of the loss of your library card or any change of address (including e-mail address). The user is responsible for any disadvantages and consequences due to the loss or abusive use of the card.

Conditions are clearly stated in the library user regulations of the University Library Magdeburg. By signing the application form you accept the regulations.

The membership is valid for one year and may be extended.

Borrowing, renewing and requesting items

Most of the resources are freely accessible and may be borrowed (with the exception of journals and reference collections).

The lending period is 28 days. You can renew items up to 5 times, if the item hasn' been requested by another user. You can renew items online using the link LOGIN to USER ACCOUNT at the library homepage. Renewing items is also possible in writing or by telephone.

As a special service you'll receive an e-mail notification 3 days before the end of the loan period. This is a voluntary non-binding service of the library and does not exempt you from the obligation to control the loan period.

You can request an item if the copy is out of loan. First complete a search at the online catalogue to find the book you need. It will note if it is "Available" or "Borrowed" underneath the description, click "Reserve" and confirm with your user number and password. You will receive an e-mail when your requests have arrived at the library counter.

Inter-library loan

Books and articles from journals which are not in the LIN or the Medical Central Library can normally be requested from other libraries using the inter-library loans service. If required, please contact the library team.
