Borrowing Library Materials

Library user may borrow library materials not more than his/her borrowing quota. Library provides lending services only to users who possess a valid library card. Users can borrow/return library materials by presenting their library cards to the Circulation Counter or by themselves using the Self-check unit. If you have any questions in using the unit, please feel free to contact our library staff.

On the other hand, library users may also walk-in to any one of the IVE Libraries to borrow circulating materials. But, please be notified that special loan periods and loan quotas may apply.

Inter-Campus Library Loans

Inter-Campus Library Loans within IVE Libraries are available to our campus staff and students through the Library Online Catalogue. Users will be notified through email when the requested items are available for collection.


Library materials may be renewed via Library Online Catalogue or directly via the Circulation Counter if the following conditions are met :

  • The item is not overdue
  • The item has not been reserved
  • The maximum number of renewal for the item has not been exceeded
  • All library fines have been settled

Returning Library Materials

Borrowers are responsible for returning their loans on or before the due date to the Library. Library user may also return the borrowed items to the Library book drop. Overdue notices will be sent to borrowers. Non-receipt of overdue notices in any format will NOT be accepted as an excuse for waiving overdue fines.

Normal Items (Books, non-print materials and back issues of periodicals) $1 per item per day $30
Reserve Items $1 per item per hour $30
