What are Short Loans?

Short Loans is a specific section in the library, located behind the lending desk.

Here you may find prescribed books on shorter shelves, arranged by course and the lecturers name. You can only take these books out for 3 hours and only use them in the library.

The philosophy behind a "short loans" section is one of "equal access for all". The idea is that prescribed textbooks may be put here (when requested by the lecturer of the course), so that students can take the textbooks out and get the information they need, and then the book is still available for other students to be able to use.
