These management policy has been established in order to facilitate the use of the library by the faculty and students of the Department and to maximize the benefits of the facility.
All faculty members and students of NTNU are eligible to loan books from the library. The general public may browse the books and resources in the library.
All faculty, staff, and students of NTNU are required to present their ID cards when borrowing books. Anyone without relevant proof of identification will not be allowed to borrow books from the library.
Max volumes allowed to be borrowed and loan period
- Full-time and part-time faculty members: 60 books, 3 months
- Graduate students: 60 books, 2 months
- Undergraduate students, teaching assistants, staff, project assistants, maintenance workers: 30 books, 1 month
- Alumni, retired staff, and students of NTNU Extension , School of Continuing Education: 10 books, 1 month
- Other personnel: 5 books, 1 month
Borrowed books can be renewed if there are no reservations for the said books made by other readers. Each book can only be renewed once.
Journals in Chinese and Western languages, bulletins, collection of papers, tests in print, dictionaries in Chinese and Western languages, and books labeled “restricted access” are only to be accessed within the library. These materials are neither to be borrowed or removed from the library.
For the loan of videotapes, audiotapes, projection slides, and CD-ROMs, faculty members who require these materials for teaching purposes enjoy priority in access. Faculty members may borrow up to 3 items for a period of 2 weeks; graduate students and undergraduate students may borrow up to 2 items for a period of 1 week. Other personnel are only allowed to access the materials within the library and may not loan or remove them from the library.
A fine of NT$5 per day per item will be levied on items that are overdue.
For students in the Master of Education Program, the highest volume of book loans takes place during the summer vacation. As such, part-time student employees working in the library are to compile a list of the books borrowed by students in the Master of Education Program before the end of the summer vacation. The list will be shared with the supervisor of each Master of Education Program cohort to remind the students to return the books on time.
If books borrowed are lost or damaged, the borrower is to compensate the library by buying the same book and returning it to the library. If the book is not available for purchase, compensation shall be sought in one of the following ways:
- A newer edition of the book can be used to replace the old one, subject to the library’s approval and the condition that the price of the new book cannot be lower than the price of the old one.
- Compensation in cash. The fine shall be determined through the following ways, in order of priority:
- 3 times the purchase price of the book, according to the library records, and after adjusting for inflation using the price index.
- If the purchase price cannot be determined, the fine will be calculated based on the number of pages in the lost item. For books in Chinese, the borrower will be charged NT$ 3 per page; for books in foreign languages, the borrower will be charged NT$ 10 per page. If the number of pages cannot be determined, it will be assumed that the lost item contains 300 pages.
- If the lost or damaged book belongs to a series or collection of books, the fine will be determined using the method described in the preceding paragraph and then doubled.
- Regardless of the method of compensation, a processing fee of NT$100 will be charged for each lost or damaged item.
- Borrowers paying for lost or damaged items by cash are to complete the compensation process within two weeks after the loss or damage has been reported. Borrowers purchasing a new book are to complete the compensation process within two weeks if the book is published locally, and within four months if the book is published overseas. Borrowers who exceed the deadline for the compensation process shall be taken as being overdue in returning the books, and they shall be charged an overdue fine on top of their existing fine.
The opening hours of the library of the department will be announced every semester. No visitors are allowed to enter the library out of service time.
Please leave your personal belongings in a locker when entering the library.
The management policy has been approved for the implementation in the departmental meetings. The same process has been approved when there are amendments made to the content.
