Library: How can I borrow a book from the library?
Students will receive all information about book lending through emails. The emails are usually sent by the library assistant before the start of each block; therefore, it is important to keep track of all emails through your student account.
All students must make sure that they are registered for all exams/modules in advance. Registration allows students to collect books for the modules and take the exams. No registration means no books!
