Borrowing procedure
No materials shall be removed from the Reference Area until they have been properly checked out at the Service Counter.

A borrower shall, before leaving the reference area, ensure that the books on loan is undamaged and in good condition.

Recall
All materials checked out for more than 10 days are subject to recall. There will be a new due date superseding the previous one listed on the due date slip. If the material is not returned within the period, HK$3.00 per calendar day will be charged on each overdue item. Please note that there is no grace period for any recall item.

Renewal
All checked out books may be renewed twice provided that they are not reserved by another user. Any overdue fines must be cleared before a renewal can be made. Renewal is treated as a continuation of loan and thus will be subject to recall at any time.

Return Procedure
All users must return the loan items to the staff on duty at the Service Counter of the Reference Area.

Late Return and Fines
The users must check the item due date by themselves and make sure that they return the books before the due date. No separate notice will be sent to remind users of overdue books.

Fines for the late return of loan materials will be charged as follows:

Overdue Fines: HK$3.00 per item per calendar day (Excluding Sundays & Public Holidays)

Non-payment of bills or fines over $60 will automatically result in suspension of borrowing privileges.

Loss and Damage
Users shall be held responsible for any loss of or damage of the loan materials and shall be responsible for replacement cost and the accumulated fines. No fees will be refunded if the borrower subsequently finds the lost item after paying the fees and fines.

Copyright
Users should follow the Copyright Ordinance (Chapter 528) which governs the making of photocopies or other reproduction of copyrighted materials.
