You will need your student ID to borrow any media. A library account is created for you automatically. The loan periods are listed in the following table:
|Type of media||Loan period||Extension|
|Books||3 weeks||possible up to 5 times|
|CDs/DVDs||3 weeks||possible up to 5 times|
|Magazines||3 days||not possible|
|Locker key, baskets||until 12 p.m. of the following business day||not possible|
Loan periods are monitored automatically. Three days before their loan period expires, users will receive a reminder e-mail. If the loan period is exceeded, reminders with a penalty fee are automatically sent out. Media can be returned at any of the Library's branches, including via the return machines in HN-Sontheim. Students may borrow up to 50 media at one time.
