Services for TU Wien institutes and staff from May 2020

From May 2020, loans, inter-library loans and book acquisitions for institutes and staff of TU Wien will be resumed in stages.

Book loans: From Monday, 11 May 2020, TU Wien staff can request books from the open access areas and closed stacks of the Main Library and the Chemistry and Mechanical Engineering Library online on CatalogPlus with their library accounts.

The books will be addressed to your institute address and deposited for collection at the Freihaus or Getreidemarkt porters' lodges; postal delivery to your private address is not possible. To collect the books, you will need to present your TUcard or another photo identification. If you have any questions, please contact

Inter-library loans and document delivery:

Library staff will only be present on some days. Scanning printed resources for institutes is therefore not possible at the moment; we plan to resume this service in June. Inter-library requests for books and articles will be processed starting from the middle of May. From June, you will be able to collect your requested books and articles at the porters' lodges of Freihaus or Getreidemarkt upon presentation of your TUcard. If you have any questions, please contact

New books:

Books that are urgently needed at the institutes, and cannot be made available as ebooks, will be acquired from May and deposited for collection at the porters' lodges of Freihaus or Getreidemarkt. Our staff will not work on these books daily but in a biweekly rhythm. You will be emailed by us when books are ready for collection. Any member of your institute can collect the books, upon presentation of their TUcard at the porter's lodge.

Please note that we are still focussing on acquiring ebooks where possible. Orders can be placed as usual via TISS. If you have any questions, please contact
