LLD - costs and delivery times

According to the library fee regulations (in German) of the University of Heidelberg, interlibrary loan fees (§ 4) and postage (§ 5) may be charged.

You can build up a credit balance via the pay machine, with which orders are automatically settled. You will be informed about costs, estimated delivery time and collection by e-mail.
