Lending regulations

Who can borrow?
The University Library of Stavanger (UBiS) is an academic library. Borrowing privileges are granted to any person over the age of 16.

A valid ID must be shown in order to get a library card. A national library card may be used. The card is personal and can’t be used by others. Patrons are responsible for familiarizing themselves with the university library regulations before using the library card.

The UiS student card functions as a library card. Students change their address in StudentWeb, while other patrons contact the library.

Loan period
Loan period for books, theses, sheet music, etc:

  • Three weeks at Ullandhaug
  • Three weeks at the Archaeological museum
  • Three weeks for books and six weeks for sheet music at Bjergsted

These documents may be renewed unless there is a waiting list.

Journals, DVDs and CDs may be borrowed for one week and can’t be renewed.

Log on via the library’s home page to renew loans. It is possible to renew up to 8 times. The maximum holding time is 6 months.

Contact the library to renew interlibrary loans.

Borrowing privileges are lost after receiving three reminders and will remain so until the document is returned or renewed.

Ordering loans and copies
Patrons may collect available materials from the shelves. Material on loan may be reserved. Interlibrary loan service is provided free of charge to students and staff at UiS, as well as students from other universities who live locally.

Borrowers responsibility
