The conditions for e-book loans vary and are governed by the publishing house that produced the book. You can find the publishers' conditions and loan periods here. If you have problems accessing an e-book, check the University’s guide to e-books and electronic resources.

Check the return date in LUBcat

Books borrowed from different libraries at the University may have different loan periods.

Check the return date under Your summary in the library catalogue LUBcat. If you have provided a valid email address, you will get a reminder when the loan period is about to expire. If this would not work, it is still your responsibility to keep track of the loan period.
