Regulations concerning the failure to return overdue
following regulations take effect from 20 June 2001:
loan period and lending regulations must be respected. If a book is
not returned after two overdue notices, borrowers will, after
receiving a third overdue notice, be refused further loans from the
University of Bergen Library until the borrowed material has been
returned. In order to get back their library privileges borrowers must
return the overdue literature and pay a fee of NOK
100,-. This applies both to loans from the University library’s own
collections, and to interlibrary loans.
overdue literature is still not returned after a third overdue notice,
borrowers must in addition replace the lost material. Borrowers must
then pay the cost of replacement plus a service charge of NOK 350,- to
cover the library’s expenses. The minimum replacement amount is NOK
700,-. If the lost material is
returned after the borrower has received a replacement notice, the replacement
is cancelled. If the lost material is
returned after the borrower has paid the replacement costs, the borrower will be refunded the replacement amount minus the service
charge of NOK 350,-.
interlibrary loans the University of Bergen Library must pay the
replacement amount decided on by the owner library. In such cases the
borrower must pay the same amount. Even if the borrower later returns
interlibrary loans, he/she must pay the full replacement amount.
