The above loan periods are valid only for items with loan category set to "Standard Loan".
Items with loan category set to "Short Loan" are lent on hourly basis. The loan period of those items is a 2 hour duration or overnight, i.e. from 2:30 p.m. till 8:30 a.m.
Items with loan category set to "Building Use" are strictly used within the library premises.
Items with loan status set to "In Cataloging" are in process, you can request a rush processing if the item in question is highly needed.
Laptops can be borrowed for 2 hours and are strictly used within the library premises.
Summer Borrowing Policy:
Junior, senior, and graduate students who are not registered for the summer semester are allowed to borrow library materials during the summer term.
Freshman and sophomore students who are not registered for the summer semester can only use library materials inside the library premises.
On loan items may be renewed only if they are not overdue or reserved by another user.
In case an item is needed and it is not available (i.e. on loan to another user), a reservation may be placed at the circulation desk.
An ascending charge of 1,000 L.L. per item per day is levied on each item that is not returned or renewed on time.
Charges are assessed retroactively from the first day that the item was overdue, and up to 3 weeks; after this period charges will stop (21,000 L.L.) and the item will be considered lost. If the item was not returned, the user will have to pay the accumulated charges plus the replacement cost of the item.
Failure to pay overdue charges and/or replacement fees will result in the blocking of library borrowing privileges and the university clearance form will not be signed until payment is settled.
