Lending service for KHM members

Students and fellows at the Academy of Media Art Cologne, on showing a valid access card to KHM, may take out books and AV media over the weekend (Thursday to Monday).

The Academy teaching staff can take out media at any time. The lending period for all media is four weeks. A renewal is possible by phone, per E-mail or online via the user account at the library catalogue.

Television recordings cannot be taken out for copyright reasons. Video workplaces have been made available for watching these.

Borrowing for degree candidates


Every student can request the "diploma status" for six months. This allows you to borrow media every day, not only over the weekend. During this time you can take media home for a week.

Interlibrary loans


Books and articles in journals that are not available in the library but needed for scientific work can be ordered from other libraries via interlibrary loan.

Please check if the title you are looking for is neither available at KHM library nor other libraries in Cologne. Here you can check the library catalogue "KoelnBib".

You can submit your interlibrary loan with all available information personally or via eMail.
