How do I borrow books?

Your student card or the student app works as your library card. It will be functional as soon as you have completed the semester registration.

How long can I keep my borrowed books?

The guaranteed loan time is 2 weeks. After that, the loan will renew automatically for 2 more weeks as long as there isn’t a waiting list for the book. The maximum time to can borrow a book for is six months. You will get a message via e-mail or SMS when you need to return the book to the library. If there is not a waiting list for the book then you can borrow the book again.
