The article offers information about the Fachhochschule Library (FHB) in Augsburg, Germany, and its around-the-clock self service reservations and automated media return policy, which was instituted in 2007. The self service reservation station saves time during the borrowing and return of library media, and students' multi-function cards facilitate all activities related to library use. The library's conversion to a BiblioChip software system is described and evaluated.
