A library user may borrow the maximum number of items as indicated in the following tables.

 

Please note that there are, in some cases, a limitation on the maximum number of items of a particular media category (for example, books) which can be issued to a particular user category.

 

These limitations are indicated in the table, where applicable. In cases where there is no limitation on the number of items in the tables for the distinctive media types, the maximum number of items that a user is allowed to borrow is calculated by subtracting the number of items already issued to the user from the total number of items that may be issued to him.
