Can I still borrow or renew items when I have received a return reminder?

Yes, you can. However, when your fine is already 10 euro's or more it's not possible anymore. You will first have to return the overdue item and pay the fine, before you are allowed to borrow or renew items again.

Can I also renew the lending period online?

Yes, you can. Go to the NHTV Catalogue, select ‘Borrower Info’ in the menu bar to the top. Fill in your student number (+00) or employee number,  which is stated on your NHTV smartcard and the first three characters of your family name. Now you can tick the items you want to renew. Please note: always check the due date! If  the due date has already expired, or if the item has been renewed more than 9 times, or if it has been requested by another borrower, in which cases it is not possible to renew your loans!!

I am unable to renew my books online, because I cannot tick the book concerned, what does that mean?

The item you want to renew has already been renewed today, or it has been renewed more than 9 times, or the item has been requested by another borrower, in which cases it is not possible to renew your loans. In the ‘Reservation’ column, you can find how many times the title has been reserved.
