Loan period violation

The purpose of the Library is to improve user services and maintain a smooth operation. Therefore, introduces a penalty point system with the application of negative points for overdue items which may result in a temporary suspension of borrowing privileges or permanent abolition of them.

In particular: each item overdue, receives one (1) penalty point per day of overdue.

Users who fail to return or renew items within five (5) working days, reach the penalty point limit of 5 penalty points and their library privileges are suspended. The same applies when users have any other debt to the Library even if they have not reached the maximum number of items entitled to borrow.

When penalty points reach 30, the user’s borrowing privileges are suspended for one (1) month.

Penalty accumulation may result in permanent loss of borrowing privilege with a Senate decision. Please consult the full text of Library Rules & Regulations for details on borrowing services.
