Loan period and renewal

Each medium has a fixed guaranteed loan period.

If no reservation is made the loan period will be automatically extended.

The maximum loan period has expired or someone has made a reservation?

Then you will receive a free return request.  If the media is not returned within one week, you will have to pay reminder fees.

Exception: In the case of sub-loans from semester reserve  or intermedia loan of handsets, no free return request will be sent and special fees will be charged.
