New maximum loan period

26 August 2022

From 26 August 2022 onwards, the maximum loan period for books and journals borrowed at Leiden University Libraries will be 6 months, instead of the current 3 months period. For Leiden University, KITLV and LUMC staff, the maximum loan period will remain 1 year.

During the maximum loan period, the library will automatically renew the due date for borrowed materials, in 3-week periods. For items reserved by another user, the due date cannot be extended.
