Most offers of the University Library are free of charge. In some cases, however, fees apply:

Printing, copying, and scanning

You can print, copy, and scan items in all branch libraries. If you do the scanning yourself, it is free.

Interlibrary Loan

Within Germany, books are usually sent for free. In exceptional cases, a fee of no more than 10 euros can apply for photocopies.


If your items are overdue, the Library has the right and is obligated to ask you to return them and pay a fine. Reminder fines cover the administrative costs for sending the reminders. They go into the general treasury of the Free State of Bavaria and are not allocated to the library or book budget.

Exclusion from the Library

Pursuant to Section 26, Subsection 1 of the General Regulations on the Use of Bavarian Public Libraries (ABOB), individuals who repeatedly and grossly breach the terms of use or the instructions of the Library can be excluded from using it.

A fine of 30 euros plus postage applies.
