Loan periods and borrowing limits

The system adds to the borrowed books an automatic extension for a period of one year at most, on condition that another reader did not order the book. The return date must be monitored using the DaTA system or the TAU-Mobile application.

If the library is closed, you can return the book to the drop box that is located at the entrance to the library.

If the book is too big for the drop box, leave the book with the Maintenance Team.

Please do not return books from the geography library to the Exact Sciences and Engineering library



Losing student card

In a case of a lost card please inform the library. The library will block the card in all university libraries, in order to prevent unwanted use of the card.


Lost books

A reader is obliged to report a lost book and will need to replace a lost book with a copy of the same book. The replaced book will be new or in mint condition and will be exactly the same as the lost book.  You can purchase a new copy through the Exact Sciences and Engineering library. In addition, the reader will be charged with a handling fee and the fine that accumulated for being late in returning the book.



Borrowers are fined for not returning books on time.

The fine will be calculated from: 15:45 PM.

Amount of fine: 15 ILS a day per item.

Loan services will be blocked until the fine is paid.


Requested books

Requested book that was returned to the library will wait for the specific reader for a week in the librarian desk.
