Library lending departments
Academic collection lending department
Documents lent as part of the academic lending department are ordered from closed stacks at a user’s request or chosen by a user on open-access shelves (documents are marked with ‘A’ on the spine). The user registers the bar codes (RFID marks) in the digital log at the librarian’s desk. The librarian stamps the date of return in the return form. The user shows the documents with marked return date stamp to the staff at the library checkpoint. Documents from the academic lending department are lent for 15 calendar days, no more than five items at a time, with the opportunity to renew personally, by phone or by email (firstname.lastname@example.org).

Ordering printed materials
A large amount of library material is held in closed stacks, which can be located on library premises (except the Central Library). In the e-catalogue such documents are marked as «Single copy». Documents from the closed access stock are delivered 30 minutes after the librarian is given a completed user’s order or a user reserves the document in the e-catalogue. The ordered documents are stored on the reservation shelf for two days. When a user receives the document, he or she signs the book log and leaves his user’s card. A maximum of five items can be taken at any one time.
