Short Loan Collection

The Short Loan Collection (SLC) is located next to the Library entrance, near the Circulation Desk. It consists of material transferred temporarily from the main collection, for which there is high demand. The material can be accessed by a greater number of users and includes monographs, offprints, instructor notes, and other material that instructors have designated for courses currently offered. Books in the SLC bear a yellow sticker on the spine and have the location designation “Short Loan Collection, Ground Floor” in the catalogue.

SLC books can be borrowed for:

  • 2 hours for in-library use, during any time the Library is open.
  • Overnight for take-home checkout, starting any time from 16:00-17:00 Monday to Friday. Books must be returned by 09:00 the next working day.
  • Instructor notes cannot be checked out, whereas books and other material cannot be renewed, reserved or recalled.

For items not returned by the due date/time a penalty fine of €0,40 per hour is charged; moreover, the user cannot check out any other item until the fine has been paid.
