How it works – automatic renewals

**This blog post is also available in Swedish**


When borrowing books from the library, the loan period is normally 21 days, or 7 days if someone has placed a reservation on the book. When the loan period ends, your book will be renewed automatically for another loan period at a time, unless another borrower has requested it. 

If someone has requested the book, it will not be renewed and you have to return it before the due date. The maximum number of automatic renewals is 15 for LiU students and 25 for LiU employees.

Even if your loans often will be renewed automatically, make sure to keep track of the due date on your borrowed books. Overdue books will eventually be billed, and then you will have to pay an overdue fee of 200 SEK.

The easiest way to check the due date on your books is by logging in to My loans.

Note! Automatic renewal does not apply to textbook reference copies, which are day loan items only.

Please contact the library if you have any questions!
