If you are a student of the Freie Universität you will receive e-mails only on your Zedat e-mail address! Alma will overwrite any existing e-mail address! Please use the settings to redirect e-mails to other addresses if needed.
We ask all external users to provide us with their e-mail address as soon as possible.
Except for third dunning notices, all notifications issued through the library management system will be sent to you as e-mails only. You will also receive e-mails to inform you about the status of your requests and to remind you of upcoming return dates etc. That saves us a lot of paper!
Students can now log in to the research portal Primo, the PCs and the thin clients with their Zedat credentials. The password can be changed in the Zedat Portal.
To check whether an item is available or not you have to be logged in to Primo.
No more waiting days! You will have to return or renew your items in time - otherwise you will be fined. Your account will be blocked, when fees and fines reach 10 Euros. The goal here is not to annoy you, but to give everyone faster access to highly needed items!
Fees and Fines
Fees and fines can be paid in cash at every circulation desk of any library (except at the Meteorology Library). Of course you still have the option to use the pay stations or transfer the amount to:
Berliner Bank, Niederlassung der Deutschen Bank
IBAN: DE67 1007 0848 051 3128 900
Swift Code (BIC): DEUTDEDB110
Payment reference/Verwendungszweck: 011/58 AND your Library User Number (absolutely required!)
DVDs can be taken out for two whole weeks and can be renewed by students. External users will have to give us a call, write us a mail or renew the item in person.
In line with the regular hold period, interlibrary loan items up will be held ready to be picked up at the University Library Circulation Desk or Reading Room for five opening days. Interlibrary loan items that have not been picked up or used within that period will be sent back.
The maximum interlibrary loan period is four weeks. Unfortunately, renewals are no longer possible.
The PIN for the self-checkout machines at the Campus and Economics Library can be managed in Primo under "My account → personal settings”.
