Returning Borrowed Books.

Please return books to the Circulation Desk at the Main Campus Library. Outside of library hours, you can return books in the drop bin located just outside of the library's main entrance. The books will be processed on the following work day.

You can also return books to the library by postal mail (registered!) to the following address:

Universitätsbibliothek Linz
Altenberger Straße 69
A-4040 Linz

If you are mailing books back from outside of Austria (please also send these using registered mail!), please write: "entlehnte Werke aus Bibliothek" (=borrowed books from the library), or something similar, so that no customs fees will be charged!
