A valid library card must be presented when borrowing items.
You can borrow up to 20 items (books, DVDs and CD-ROMs), of which a maximum of:
- 10 books or DVDs/CD-ROMs from the textbook collection
- 10 books or DVDs/CD-ROMs from the main colection
Books and DVDs/CD-ROMs from the textbook collection may only be borrowed by students of the Medical University of Vienna.
The loan period for general medical literature is 14 days, 60 days for books from the textbook collection and 28 days for books from the branch-library for dentistry.
Should the loan period be exceeded, late-fees shall be incurred and user-privileges temporarily suspended. You shall then be able neither to borrow nor to extend loan periods. Your account will only be reinstated when the overdue items have been returned and the late-fees paid.
In cases of loss or damage, borrowers must cover the cost of a replacement copy (of the same or a more recent edition).
Before you borrow a book, please check it for potential damage (especially annotations/markings) and report any such damage to the librarian on duty, who shall make a note of it in the book.
