If you fail to renew or return borrowed media, fines for overdue books will be due even if there is no reminder by the library. The fees are listed in the fee regulations of the University Library.


The library account is automatically suspended when the fees exceed 30 Euro.
If the account is suspended, it is not possible to borrow books, use the interlibrary loan, extend other borrowed media, oder from the closed stacks or make reservations.
