Lost or Damaged Documents

Since readers are responsible for the borrowed documents, you are required to compensate for the loss or damage caused while the item was in your care, according to the following: 

  • If the damaged book can be repaired, the library will determine the cost of repair, and you must pay for the repairment;  
  • If it is damaged beyond repair, you must replace the item with an identical copy (same edition etc.) or purchase a new edition;
  • If the book is no longer available on the market, the library will determine the replacement cost of the item.  

Please note: Highlighting, underlining or taking notes in a document borrowed from the library is not allowed thus any of these actions are considered to be intentional damaging of the document.
