Duration of the loan period
The duration of the loan period can vary depending on the type of document and the NEBIS library.
In the standard case, the indication reads “loan four weeks”. After the first twenty-eight days, the loan period is automatically renewed twice by twenty-eight days a time. After that, you can renew your documents a maximum of three times (see online renewal) until a maximum loan period of 168 days has been reached. A renewal is only ever possible if the item has not been reserved.
The loan period indicated in the user account or NEBIS catalog is binding in every case. Consequently, even if reserved, the document is only recalled once this period has elapsed. This also goes for the new loan period after a renewal.
If the maximum loan period has been reached, you must present or return your documents at the holding library’s desk.
You will receive a message requesting you to renew your document online. We recommend you always wait for this message before renewing your documents as this is the only way you can obtain the maximum loan period.
Please note that the new loan period date is reset from the renewal date. Example: one of your documents is due back on 19 December. You renew the document on 23 December, so the new loan period is calculated from 23 December.
