Your valid student or staff card will give you access to the library and its facilities:

  • Go to the Open shelves to retrieve the book that you want & after finding it, take it to the circulation counter
  • The staff at the circulation will request your student / staff card & the book that you retrieved from the shelves that you want to borrow
  • The staff member at the circulation counter will scan your student / staff card and the book (s) that you want to borrow
  • After scanning both the book & your student / staff card, he/she will stamp the due date when the book should be returned to the library
  • When returning the book after the due date, you can drop it in the “Boekebus” which is at the entrance of the library or you can return it to the staff members at the circulation counter.  You will receive an “SMS” notification indicating the books that you have returned
