Non-lending library

External visitors are welcome and allowed to use the library as a non-lending library. For members of Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht, the majority of the library stock is available for internal work on HZG campus.


Members of Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht may obtain literature via Interlibrary-Loan.
ILL-order-links / buttons on the most important publisher’s websites and databases have been installed. In addition the order form on our website or email-messages may be also used

Publications ordered via interlibrary loan generally take 3 to 14 days to arrive, and in some cases may take longer. Urgently needed articles are ordered via delivering services like "Subito" or directly at the publisher.
