Renewal of loan period

How many times can I renew a loan period?

The loan periods of borrowed media can be renewed for up to 1 year (except: interlibrary loans).

Standard loans can be renewed as long as they are not required by another customer.

The loan period can also be renewed if it has already been exceeded.

The renewal is at your own risk.

Good to know! Keep track of your return dates!

Import the due dates of your borrowed media into your calendar system as an iCal calendar.
