Library introduces new reminder system

Published on
February 20, 2007

Early 2007 a new loan system will be introduced by Wageningen UR Library. This will also change the way you are reminded when the loan period will be overdue. The amount of the fines will be changed as well.

You will in time receive a warning by email that the loan period is about to be due. You may then extend the loan or return the publication(s). When the publications are not returned or the loan period is not renewed, you will receive an email weekly with an overview of the items that have not been returned and the fines that are still to be paid.

Sending the emails is a courtesy service to you as a user. You cannot derive any rights from them, however. Returning the books in time and/or renewing the loan periods of borrowed publications will remain your own responsibility. Would you please pass your e-mail address on to us if you haven’t done this yet.

Charges of fines per 1st December 2006:

  • 1-2 weeks overdue € 1,- per item
  • 3-4 weeks overdue € 2,- per item
  • 5-6 weeks overdue € 10,- per item
  • In the 7th week an invoice for at least € 40,- per item will be
    sent to you.
