Loan policy

Policy regarding loan at the INN-library. 

Who? All students and staff from Inland Norway University of Applied Sciences (INN) can borrow materials at the INN-library. External users may use our collections as well, but won’t get extra benefits like interlibrary loans.
How long? In general the loan period is 4 weeks. However, some items may have a shorter loan period (e.g. journals and DVD’s). At your personal Oria/library account you can check the due dates for your loan.
Renewal of loan: Materials can be renewed if there’s no waiting list. You can renew your materials yourself via Oria. 
Recall notice: If you haven’t renewed your loan you will get a recall notice. After the third recall notice you will loose your user privileges at the INN-library. If you return the material(s), replace the material(s) or pay the compensation fee you will get your user privileges back.
Recall notices will be send via e-mail and/or SMS.
Compensation claim and fee: If the material(s) are damaged or lost you will get a compensation claim. Currently, the compensation fee is set on 700,- NOK for most documents and materials (this amount is based on the average price of the item and how much it will cost to replace it). Some items that are more expensive will have a higher compensation fee.
Responsibility: Everybody is personally responsible for the items they borrow.
