  • another user has requested the material;
  • the maximum loan period has been reached
  • In both situations you will be notified by email.

Maximum loan periods

  • 30-day books 90 days

OVERVIEW OF MY REQUESTS AND BORROWED MATERIALS

In your account in the Catalogue you will find an overview of all your requested and borrowed books. 

RETURNING MATERIALS

You can return borrowed materials at the library desk (5th floor).
If you are not able to return the material on time due to circumstances. Then please contact us.

REMINDER EMAILS AND BLOCKED ACCOUNT

Shortly before the loan period expires, you will receive a reminder via e-mail to return borrowed material on time. Once the loan period has expired, we will send you several reminders. Therefore, check your mailbox (and spam folder) once in a while.

  • Reminder 1 (day after the due date) 
  • Reminder 2 (day 4)
  • Reminder 3 (day 11): blocking of your account takes effect. You can no longer request, borrow and renew material. Unblocking can only be done at a library desk and when you return the borrowed material.
  • Reminder 4 - the last one (day 18): your account remains blocked and you will soon receive a bill.
  • No later than two weeks after the last (4th) reminder, you will receive a bill for replacement costs. 

If you return the material, any replacement costs will be waived. Fees can only be paid by cash at the library desk.

LOST OR DAMAGED LIBRARY ITEMS

If you lose or damage a library item, notify the library as soon as possible. Please state clearly in the form which book it concerns. Then please contact us.
We will issue an invoice for any replacement charges. Once you have paid your invoice, we will clear your record.
