Lending periods, reminder and fees


The lending period for specialist books and journals is two weeks. During that time you can extend the lending period twice for two weeks each by yourself via your personal library account. Therefore, the lending period can be extended in total up to six weeks, if the medium is not preordered by anyone else.

Due to the fact that presence books represent highly important literature, it is possible to lend them overnight or during weekends only. Lending this type of media is feasible during the last library opening hour of a day and it has to be returned within the first opening hour of the following morning.

In case media is not returned on time and the loan period got exceeded without prior notice to library staff, fees will apply.
