University Library reinstates late fees for overdue loans

Circular of the University Library

Dear colleagues, dear students,

since closing on December 16th 2020, the University Library has not recalled  any books or charged any overdue fines. In the meantime, a large number of  reservations have accumulated on borrowed items.

The University Library will consequently reactivate its reminder routines:

  • as of 1st March 2021, borrowed books will be recalled (books with  reservations and overdue borrowed books)  •
  • from 8th March 2021 onwards, overdue fines will be charged (for overdue  borrowed books)

Please check for notifications from the University Library delivered to your  university email address and return recalled books promptly to avoid overdue  fines.

The University Library will continue to be open only for the check-out and  return of books. Admission is controlled by a card reader with an attached  raffic light system, which means you need to have your student or employee ID  card at the ready for access.

Yours sincerely,
Dr. Marianne Dörr
Library Director
