You are personally responsible for the items you borrow and for returning them within the due dates.
OBS! You will not receive any overdue fines as long as the libraries are closed or have reduced services. Please contact us by e-mail if you have received overdue fines during this period.
The library will send you a reminder one day before the item is due.
Patrons with outstanding fees or overdue loans are not eligible to borrow books or other items from the library. Full access to all library services will be reinstated as soon as the fees are paid in full and the item are returned to the library.
You are responsible for the items you borrow. If the items are not returned after you receive the 3rd notice, you will be liable to pay a fee according to the following rates:
You may also choose to provide the library with a replacement copy of the missing item. If a replacement copy is provided the fee will be waived.
Failure to receive a notice does not cancel obligations to pay fines or fees.
All students must find the books they want to borrow on the shelves. However, you may reserve/order books that are on loan or not available on your campus. The book will then be reserved or ordered from another library, and you will receive a text message or an e-mail when you can collect the book at the University Library.
External users can only reserve items belonging to the University Library, i.e. they cannot order items from other libraries.
If an item is not requested by another user, you can normally renew the same item up to five times.
You can renew your loans by signing in to Oria (oria.no) using your FEIDE username and password. If you do not have FEIDE credentials please contact the library for help. External users and students from other institutions must contact the library to renew their loans.
