The German National Library is affiliated to national and international interlibrary loan in a limited form.
Due to the special degree of safeguard for the holdings the German National Library participates in the interlibrary loan only at the moment when the desired media are traceable neither in the regional nor in the national catalogues of the federal States ("last resort"). Basis is the "Ordnung des Leihverkehrs in der Bundesrepublik Deutschland - Leihverkehrsordnung (LVO)".
Interlibrary loan orders to the German National Library are dealt centrally in Leipzig.
