Borrowing materials

A valid University of Ljubljana student ID or a library card is needed for borrowing library materials. A student/library card is not transferable to another person.

The loan period for books is usually one month or two weeks but departmental libraries can set their own rules regarding the loan period depending on the type of materials.

Items on loan can be renewed in person, by telephone, e-mail or via COBISS+ by using My Libraries service.

Overdue loans are charged per day according to the current price list. If items are kept overdue more than one week users may receive a written reminder.

Users are responsible for the borrowed materials. Damaged (torn, highlighted, marked) or lost materials must be replaced or damages paid according to the current price list.
