Overdue and damaged materials
If overdue materials has not been returned after three reminders we regard the material lost and the final notice will include an invoice for the replacement cost and an administrative fee of 300 SEK. In addition, your library card will be blocked. Please note that the first two reminders are sent by email and the third by surface mail.
If the material is returned undamaged immediately after the invoice has been received you are only responsible for the administrative fee of 300SEK.
