Loans

 New - Online book ordering

Order items from the stacks requires opening a library card, that can be done independently directly from the online catalog. Library readers that have cards, will just type in the details. Every reader is given a quota of up to 20 books for loan at once.
You can make a reservation prior to arrival to building, and track the status of your reservation on the reader's card, and to be informed by e-mail of the arrival of the items to the reading room, as well as get a negative answer if the item was not found.
This is a new library service, which replaces the reservation using call slips, which was used until today. No more orders can be made this way but only online.

Guidelines for readers to use the online book order service

Reasers will open a library card which allows to order to the reading rooms and circulation desk only. To borrow books home users need to fill out the full application at the circulation desk on the ground floor.

It is highly recommended to update your e-mail address on reader's card. This communication channel is fast and convenient. You will know the stat of your reservation before your coming to the building.

In this case, one of the crew will help you open a card reader that requires mail addres.
