Delay fees

If you are late to return a book or if a book you borrowed disappears, you will have to pay a fee.

A delay fee of 5SEK per day and book is charged from the first day a book is overdue. If you have a debt of over 100SEK, you will automatically be blocked for further loans and use of the library's computers.

Employees and students at the Swedish Defence University, the Swedish Institute of International Affairs and at the Swedish Armed Forces Headquarters do not pay any overdue fees. All library patrons are blocked if they do not return the books after the third overdue reminder

As a user, you are responsible for replacing lost or damaged books with a new copy. Alternatively, you can pay a flat rate of 500SEK and 250SEK in an administrative fee. For books with a purchase price exceeding 500SEK, the actual cost will be charged.

If you do not return the book when the third reminder is sent out, the book will be counted as lost and we will send an invoice. Even if the book is then returned, an administrative fee of 250 SEK has to be paid.

If you have paid an invoice for a book, you do not have to pay any overdue fees for the same book. If you have paid an invoice for a lost book and the book is later found and returned, no refund will be made.

The debt collection

If the invoice is not paid, the matter will go to debt collection.

Lost library card

If you have lost a library card, you can get a new one for a fee of 30SEK. In case of theft, we can replace the library card free of charge if you show a police report.

Contact us if you lose the card so that we can block the card for borrowing.
