LIBRARY GUIDE FOR INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS: Loan service

Presentation

Loan service

Borrowing is preferably done at the ground floor's circulation desk, but it can be also made at the circulation desks in any other floor (ground floor to 4th floor).

Returns must be exclusively made at the ground floor's circulation desk.

 

Renewals

You can postpone the return of an item you have borrowed by making an online renewal through the Library Catalogue. To do that, you should:

- Enter to the Catalogue using your credentials;

- Click on "My Profile" to see your loans;

- Click on Renew All, or renew just some of them, entering individually in each loan.

Reservations

You can make a reservation whenever you need a document that was already borrowed by someone else. This must be made online through the Library's Catalogue.

Books' identification on the shelves

 

The colour label represents the floor where the book's shelve is located. In this example, a green label means that this book is located in the 2nd floor of the library.

The red circle means that the book cannot be borrowed, it stays permanently at the library.

The green circle means that the book can only be borrowed for 3 days (shorter loan limit) and that the loan cannot be renewed.

The call number shows the location of the book on the shelves.

 

Fines

Should an item not be delivered within the due date, a fine is charged to the user.

Each extra day over the loan limit is charged with a fine of 0,50 EUR.
