If the loan period is exceeded, a written reminder will be sent for the return of the books or media units. The reminders are subject to a fee.
The basis for charging fees is the fee schedule for the libraries of the Freie Universität Berlin.
Late fees for late returns will be charged as follows:
The reminder fees per volume or media unit for the 1st reminder are:
for the 2nd reminder 5,00 € plus 2,00 € of the first reminder:
|for the 3rd reminder € 10.00 plus € 7.00 of the first and second reminder,
The 3rd reminder shall be sent by registered mail with advice of receipt or by another delivery method.
|after the 3rd reminder has failed, a performance notice will be issued.
The notice of performance shall be sent by registered mail with advice of receipt or by another delivery method.
The handling fee for book replacements will also be increased:
10,00 € (replacement by the user)
20,00 € (procurement by the library)
The reminder fees are due when the reminder is issued. Reminders will be issued at regular intervals.
Fees can be paid at the automatic pay stations:
- Iltisstraße 1(Student Administration),
- Garystraße 39 (University Library) and
- Mensa FU II (entrance Otto-von-Simson-Straße)
As of 2017, fees incurred in several FU libraries can be paid collectively in cash at an FU lending desk. A bank transfer is possible.
