Check the return date in LUBcat

Books borrowed from different libraries at the University may have different loan periods.

Check the return date under Your summary in the library catalogue LUBcat. If you have provided a valid email address, you will get a reminder when the loan period is about to expire. If this would not work, it is still your responsibility to keep track of the loan period.
