5. Renewal Policy

Patrons should renew their books within 5 days of the due date. However, the books may not be renewed, if a "hold request" has been requested by another patron.

6. Library Fines

NT$5 is charged for each day a book is overdue. If the fines are not paid, then patrons will not be able to borrow other books.

7. Making a "Hold Request" 

If books have already been checked-out by others, then patrons can make a "hold request" on-line. If patrons do not pick-up their "hold request" books, when they become available, three times or three volumes, then you may lose your request privilege for ninety days.

8. Replacement Policy

If a library patron loses, defaces, or damages any part of the library collection, then he/she is responsible for the item's replacement. Details are set out in the Replacement Policies. If someone is caught stealing any part of the library collection, then that person will be reported to the university authorities to face appropriate punishment, penalty and/or fine.

9. Annual Book Inventory Auditing

During the annual book auditing, patrons may be asked to return their books earlier than the due dates. Patrons should not loan their cards to others. Otherwise, they may lose their library privileges and may be asked to return all borrowed books.

10. Reporting Lost Cards

If you lose your card, then please notify the Library's "Circulation Desk" immediately. If you do not, then you will be held responsible for any books checked-out under your lost or stolen card.

11. Leaving the University

If you graduate, drop out, transfer to another university, retire or quit, then you must return all books to the library.
