Onleihe – the free service from your library as an app. More than 2,400 libraries are already offering this service. This app means that you always have your library with you. Browse through the library collection, and borrow eBooks and eMagazines when you’re on the move or at home directly with your Android smartphone or tablet. You can also borrow eAudio or eMusic and are able to stream them directly via the integrated player of the app. In the same way as with the web-based Onleihe, the titles you borrow are available to you free of charge for a limited period, and at the end of that period, they are automatically deleted from your Onleihe account. The app allows you to make targeted searches of the library collection, you can also browse within different subject areas. You can see immediately whether a title is currently available, and you can filter your search results by available titles or different media-types.
The comprehensive details, including sample extracts to read, will give you all the information you need about a title and the author or speaker. Titles that are already out on loan can be reserved. You will then receive an e-mail to the address you have given as soon as the title is available for you. You can access an overview list of your reservations and borrow items directly from here as soon as they are available.At any time you are able to see an overview of all the titles you have borrowed via your library’s Onleihe service. At the moment eBooks, eMagazines, eAudio and eMusic can be borrowed and consumed via the app.
