Exceptions for Faculty of Medicine students:
All liabilities to the library must be settled before membership can be extended for the next academic year.
Upon the completion of studies, students receive a certificate from the library department stating that they have no outstanding liabilities to the CMK. A degree certificate will only be issued if the student has no such liabilities.
A fine of EUR 0.25 is charged per item of material per day. Users may not borrow new material if they have not settled their liabilities to the CMK (fines for late return, unpaid photocopying accounts or non-payment of fees for articles from abroad). The debt may be settled at the loans desk or the copy shop. A user is charged EUR 0.47 for the first notification of late return, EUR 0.95 for the second notification, EUR 2.05 for the third notification, and EUR 3.15 for the last notification prior to action being taken against them to recover the material.
In the 'Moj Cobiss' column in the CMK computer catalogue, users may consult the list of items they have borrowed and the loan period, which may be extended. For this they require their membership card number and a password, which they obtain in person from the library loans department. Loan periods may also be extended in person, by telephone or by e-mail.
Extension applies from the day of extension and not from the original day of return . If you wish to retain an item for a longer period, we advise you to extend the loan period on the day on which you were originally supposed to return it.
Extension is not possible if the original loan period has expired or if the item has been reserved by another user.
