Library Card

School of English members (students, teaching staff, administrative personnel) and external users can issue a library card in the Faculty of Philosophy Subject Library which is located in the New Wing of the Faculty of Philosophy.

Requesting / Recalling Books

Users can make a request for a book only if it is already checked out to another user, and they wish to borrow it as soon as it is checked in to the library. Requests can only be done electronically by the library staff. To make a request for a book, users will need to have their library card with them. If a user wishes to borrow a book already checked out to another user earlier than the due date, then she/he must make a request as well as a recall, filling a recall slip at the reference desk.

Overdue Books

Overdue books are fined with 0,30 euro per book per day for all user categories.
