Borrow and renew
The loan period for each item is 30 days; renewals are possible. Please use "My Account" to renew loan periods. Please keep in mind that all library materials are subject to recall, which will withdraw the possibillity to renew loan periods. It is advisable to return library materials before leaving campus.
Items requested to use in the reading room will be reserved for you for 7 days. In case you use the books and still need them afterwards we keep them for 7 more days.
If you have questions or wish to renew a loan period please write us an e-mail to email@example.com.
