- Please pay attention to e-mails from the library! We will send you advance notifications by e-mail (to your university e-mail address) when your loan period is about to expire. Please not that this is not done for overnight or weekend loans. How do I get my university e-mails?
- You can log in to your library account at any time to keep an eye on loan periods. Library account login
- Did you know you can return borrowed media by post?
Please keep in mind, that
the library might demand that you return book before the loan period has expired if someone else requests the book. In that case, your renewal is cancelled.
You must return your borrowed media on time, even if the return date is during the semester break periods! In exceptional circumstances, you can extend your loan by calling the Central Library Loan Desk (phone +49 851 509 1628) during the semester break. For details, see Extending the loan period.
If you exceed the loan period, the University Library will ask you to return the item and charge a fine. The reminder with the fee notice will be sent to the address given in the Campus Portal as the contact address.
Failure to return a borrowed item on the due date will result in an overdue notice and a fine.
|1st notice||EUR 7.50 fine|
|2nd notice||an additional EUR 10.00 fine on top of the previous one|
|3rd notice||an additional EUR 29.40 fine on top of the previous ones|
Please note that the fines indicated above are cumulative: the fines imposed with the second and third overdue notices have to be paid on top of all previous fines!
You can reach the Overdues department by phone at +49 851 509 ext. 1656 or 1620 (daytime only). Alternatively, you could use the overdues contact form (in German), which is available around the clock.
You cannot pay your overdue fines in cash at the check-out desk; instead, you have to pay by bank transfer to Staatsoberkasse Landshut.
Users who do not act on a return notice will have their library privileges revoked indefinitely.
