  • Loan periods may be extended in person once, unless the materials have been requested by another library user.
  • Any circulating item is subject to immediate recall, if needed for a Course Reserve or after seven days, if requested by another patron.
  • If a book or a nonbook material is lost, the user is obliged to pay the current cost of the publication in the market and 20 TL processing fee. If the book or material is overdue, the delay fee is also charged.
  • For each delayed book, between 1st and 10th days is 1 TL per day, between the 11th and 20th day is 2 TL per day, and between the 21th and 30th day a 3 TL per day delay fee is applied. For Multimedia collection (CD, DVD, Blu-ray etc.),  delay fee is 2 TL per day.
  • When the multimedia material is overdue for 15 days and the book is overdue for 30 days, in addition to the delay fee, 20 TL transaction fee and the current price of the book are reflected.
Reserve Materials

Reserve materials are located next to the Circulation Desk, and consist of items set aside by course instructors for use by their classes.

Items on reserve are loaned for three hours. If not requested by another reader, they may be borrowed for an additional three hours. They can also be borrowed after 16:00 until 09:30 the next day.

When an hourly use item becomes overdue, the fine is applied for each hour. The overdue fine per hour is 1 TL.

If not returned within three days, the item is considered lost. The overdue fine for general collection and AV collection materials is 1 TL per day. The circulation/reserve area closes 15 minutes before the end of regular library hours.
