The date when the document is to be returned is stamped on the fly-leaf of every document on loan. Overnight lending of documents belonging to the reference Library is possible only on special occasions.

If the reader does not return documents on time she/he has to pay a fine. Until the settlement of the fine, documents cannot be renewed. Documents borrowed from the Library must be returned on time without any notice. The Library sends reminders to users when documents are overdue. Irrespectively from the date the notice was sent to the reader, the fine is calculated from the date of the original deadline. The User is obliged to replace the lost or damaged document with a copy of the same edition when it substitutes the original in every detail, or reimburse the cost.

Renewing books:

Documents borrowed can only be renewed in person or via email before the date they are due. If the documents on loan have been reserved, they cannot be renewed.
