Loans and regulations

Everybody can borrow books

You need a library account in order to borrow books. You can find books yourself by using the catalogue, and you register your loans yourself by using the loan and return- computer with library card or personal number and pin code.

Books can be borrowed, but not journals

All books can be borrowed, except for reference books. Journals may only be borrowed by staff and guests at Mathematical Sciences, and must be available in the office. Other users have the possibility to make photocopies. Single volume of journals must never leave the library.

Loan period

Books can be borrowed for at least 14 days and at the most 3 months. If another user requests the book the loan period is automatically shortened. The loans can be renewed twice. Please notice that researchers, teachers, employees and guests at Mathematical Sciences always have the first priority to books they are in need of. Therefore it is possible that their loans get renewed despite of holds, or they are placed first in line for already requested books.

Returning loans

Return your loans in time or renew them before or as soon as you get a notice from the library. Reminders are sent by e-mail for items not returned by the due date. If late items are not returned after 4 reminders, the book is considered as lost. There is a replacement fee of 600 SEK and a late fee of 200 SEK, and the loan account will be blocked. If the book is returned, you only have to pay the late fee. Exempted from the fee is empolyees at the Mathematics department regarding loans from the Mathematics library.​​
