  • The Library checks out books depending on Circulation Module.
  • NEVER allow another user to use your ID card, or borrow items for another person as you are responsible for the items borrowed using your ID.
  • Patrons who have a valid borrowing ID card with no fines and no overdue can borrow materials as mentioned below:
Patron Type Loan Period Maximum Books
Faculty member Two weeks 5
Part time faculty member One week 2
Undergraduate student One week 3
Postgraduate student Two weeks 4

  • If any of the books is overdue, then the undergraduates and postgraduate students are subjected to pay fines.
  • For Late Return:
Item Fine per day after due date: L.E.   2
  • For Lost Items: If the item is lost, the charge will be paying fine charges plus replacement cost in addition to (50 L.E.) as an overhead charge.
  • The Library will consider a Circulated Item “LOST” after 60 days overdue.
  • If a lost item is found within a year, only the replacement cost is refundable.
  • Students receive a notice once before the mid-term exam and another before the final exams to return books.
  • If the library did not receive the books or collect the fines that a student has to pay, the following steps will be taken:
    1. An overdue book will automatically block a student from borrowing.
    2. In case the book is not returned by the end of the semester, the student’s file will be automatically blocked.  The student’s final grades will be hidden till he/she returns the borrowed book(s) and/or pays the fines. That student will not be allowed to pay the university’s fees, go through the drop and add procedures or receive the graduation certificate unless he/she handles the matter with the library.
  • Books can be renewed on or before the due date unless there is no hold on the borrowed book in the following locations:
    1. Circulation Desk: either at the Main Library or Scientific Library.
    2. Send e-mail message with Subject “Renewal – Student ID” to Circulation Staff.
