Book of the Section “Didactic”

The section “Didactic” includes all the books used during courses for lessons and exams. You must check the color of the round sticker on the book spine:

  • Red sticker: Cannot be lent out.
  • Yellow sticker: loan granted for the night / holiday (Monday through Thursday from 5 p.m. to the next morning at 10 a.m. / Friday from 11 a.m. to Monday at 10 a.m. In case of a longer holiday period, the book must be returned by 10 a.m. of the first working day that follows the day of the loan.
  • Green sticker: Short-term loan (15 days)

Renewal and loan reservation
Before the expiring date of your loan, you can renew the loan of books which have not been reserved by other users in the meantime.
It is possible to reserve a book only when it is on loan. When the book has been returned, the library staff will send you an e-mail confirming the book availability. You must come to the library reception desk and pick it up within a few days (usually 5 days).

In the case you return a book after the due date, you will be excluded from borrowing another book for a period equal to the delay. This penalty is meant to encourage responsible borrowing, because other users may need the book and all users have equal rights to access the library resources.
Please take note that the duration of loan of books located in the library lower level is 30 days.
