An early return of a borrowed title before the end of the loan period is possible for the following media types:
The return must take place where the licence is ultimately used and saved so that the licence holder can be sure that the copy is also returned.
The return of a title in english language of the supplier Baker & Taylor is not possible, since they have different settings.
The return can be carried out using the following programmes/apps which have been tested by us:
To return your eBook early, open up Adobe Digital Editions.
Right-click on the eBook that you want to return and select "Return borrowed item" ("Ausgeliehenes Medium zurückgeben"). The eBook will be deleted from your device and your Onleihe account, and can be borrowed by other users.
You can return a title with any Tolino eReader. The firmware version 1.9.0 and above is required.
Tap and hold the title you wish to return, then choose "Return" from the pop-up menu. The title will be available for the next user and disappear from your account.
Open to the tab "My Media". Open the context menu of the title you want to return, and then choose "Return early".
The requirement is that the title is already downloaded to your device. If this has not yet been done, you are prompted to "Load" the title first.
