Loans

General information: Patrons can borrow loanable books for a minimum of 7 days. Patrons can place holds on loans. As long as there are no holds or overdue fees, items may be renewed. Maximum loan period for any one item: 1 year.

Most loanable items can be found on our library's shelves and can be borrowed immediately. Please note that there are a number of items, primarily non-book materials like dvds or cds which must be preordered a day previously via u:search. However not all items in the library are loanable. Such items (some reference works, dictionaries with the shelfmark W, journals, theses or items in reserve collections, current school books and books older than 100 years) can be used in the library. In order to find out whether you can borrow an item or need to use it in the library please sign in to u:search.
