Circulation and Renewal

  • You may only take books home with you by showing your membership card
  • As a rule only 30 media items (books) may be borrowed
  • The loan period of books is usually 28 business days. A renewal of the loan period is possible twice for another 28 business days each as long as no other user has reserved this book. Please consider renewing books 2 - 3 days before expiration of the loan period. This gives you the opportunity to return a non-renewable book in time, without resulting fine.
  • Important reference works and one copy of a work from the textbook collection are available at any time as reference holdings. However an overnight loan is possible.
  • Magazines, newspapers and loose-leaf publications may not be checked out under any circumstances.

    2. recall Euro 10,--
    3. demand for immediate return Euro 20,-- (plus expenses)
