Your student card or student app doubles as a library card. This will work after your semester registration has been completed.
How long is the lending period?
You will have a guaranteed lending period of two weeks. After this, the lending period will be automatically renewed as long as there is no waiting list. The maximum lending period is six months. You will be notified via e-mail/SMS when the book(s) need to be returned. If the maximum lending period is reached and there is no waiting list, you can borrow the books again.
