Loans, fees and compensation


The material of the State and University Library must be returned within 30 days. You will receive a recall notice by e-mail after 30 days.

Material from the State and University Library’s own collections can be renewed if there are no other loaners in queue. You can make an unlimited number of renewals within a year. Renewals can be made online via the link Your loans.


Fees are charged for late return of material. You will be charged 25 kr. per title if the material is 7 days overdue. You can still renew the material but you have to pay a fee.

If the material is 30 days overdue an additional fee of 25 kr. per title will be charged and the matter will be forwarded as a question of compensation. 

In connection with the bill for compensation an additional fee of 200 kr. will be charged.


Users responsible for damage to or loss of library material will be required to pay compensation

If it is not possible to replace the library material you must pay an amount of money corresponding to the valuation of the lost material (the price is determined by the State and University Library) plus a fee (according to the Law of Library Activities, number 304).
