Loan period, renewals


A loan is automatically renewed after 4 weeks (or 10 days in case of short-term loans) unless another borrower has reserved the book. The maximum number of renewals for students is 12, for staff 24. In case of a reservation, the book cannot be renewed, and has to be returned as soon as possible after the term of the loan is finished.

Renewing your loan period manually is also possible. Go to SmartCat, log in and go to My Account. Choose Renew. SmartCat will display the number of renewals and the new due date.

Late returns

Late returns will incur a reminder and a fine of € 2.50 per reminder, up to a maximum of € 10 per book.

After 4 reminders, the replacement cost will be charged.
