Return


For returnable items obtained by ILL, there will be a due date slip attached on the item. Please return the item with the attached slip to the Loan & Return Counter (P/F) before the due date. Please DO NOT return the item via book drop.

In some cases, the lending library may request for the item to be used within the Library only. Please return the item at the Loan & Return Counter after each use, before leaving the Library. When you next need to use the item, you can pick it up from the same counter as long as it is before the due date.

You do not need to return the item obtained from DDS.  You can keep the material for research and private study purposes.

Renewal


You can request for a renewal via the online form starting 6 days before the due date. You may refer to our User Guide to learn how to make a renewal request. Overdue items are not renewable.

Renewal requests are subject to the approval of the lending institution. We will communicate the outcome of renewal request with you via your PolyU email.

Please return the item to the Loan & Return Counter before the due date in the event that renewal is rejected by the lending library.

Fines & Fees


The lending library may impose a late charge and/or replacement cost for overdue, lost and damaged item. You are responsible for the payment of charges arising from the mentioned reasons.

The Library reserves the right to suspend any ILL&DDS privilege for users holding overdue item(s) or users with unpaid charges and/or replacement cost.
