Book Taxi

What is Book Taxi?

Book Taxi is a service that enables you to reserve and borrow books from the Luxembourg Learning Centre (LLC) without having to go to Belval in person – you can simply ask for the books to be transferred to Kirchberg or Limpertsberg.

Collection points with lockers can be found in the entrance hall of the central building on Kirchberg Campus, and in the corridor opposite the entrance (leading to the former library) of the central building on Limpertsberg Campus.

Book Taxi is available for PhD students, staff, and students based full-time on Kirchberg or Limpertsberg Campus.

The Book Taxi service is currently in a test phase. If there are any problems resulting from the limited number of lockers available, we will make every effort to deliver your reserved items as quickly as possible and will keep you informed.

How does it work?

  1. On a-z.lu, find the book that interests you and reserve it, selecting your preferred campus pick-up point: Kirchberg or Limpertsberg
  2. Your book is transferred to the requested campus
  3. An email is sent to inform you when the book is available in the lockers at the pick-up point*.
  4. To collect your book, open the locker indicated in the email by entering the last 4 digits of your reader number (on the back of your library card)

*Books will remain in the lockers for 7 days. If you don’t pick up your reserved books, they will be sent back to the LLC and made available for other users again.

Only borrowable books can be delivered. Documents excluded from the loan and available for consultation on site, such as dissertations, theses and journals, must be consulted at the Luxembourg Learning Centre.

How do I return my books?

There is a returns box near the lockers. After returning your books to the box, it takes 1 to 2 days for them to be removed from your user account.

What are the conditions for using the Book Taxi service?

  • You must be registered at the LLC;
  • You must be in one of the following categories: PhD students, staff, and students based full-time on Kirchberg or Limpertsberg Campus. Students with lectures on several campuses or based full-time on Belval Campus can pick up their reserved items directly at the LLC.
