Reservation Regulations

A reader, who has the right to check-out Chinese books from the loan stack rooms, automatically has the right to hold a book.

A reader can place a hold on an item by logging on to the library's OPAC system using his/her Reader's Card (The Reader's Card must be within its validity period without defaulting).

A reader can only hold an item while it is checked-out (including renewed items).

If one item is on hold for multiple readers, priority will be given according to the order of reservation time.

If the item on hold is not returned within the holding period, the hold is automatically cancelled.

A reader should check on the status of his/her held items at all times. When the status of the held item is changed into "ready for pick-up", he/she should come to the Library to check-out the item within 7 days. After 7 days, the hold is automatically cancelled and a fine of 0.30RMB is to be paid by the reader.
