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:

  • 4 hours for in-library use, during any time the Library is open.
  • Overnight for take-home checkout, starting any time after 16:00 Monday to Sunday. Books must be returned by 11:00 the following working day. Books must be returned at the Self Return Station by the user (you are advised to keep the receipt the machine prints).
  • Lecture material (photocopies of articles or book chapters) cannot be checked out.

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.
